Copy inside a variable the html of an external link

Here is my previous question: Filter new content to only display specific divs

I would like to get and copy some content from an external page inside a variable. To perform it, I'm using the jquery.get function.

// This code is adding to the div the content
$('.result').html(data);

I would like to save the content inside a variable to be able to get only informations that I want

   $.get('ajax/test.html', function(data) {
          // Add to the <div class="result"> the html of data
          $('.result').html(data);
          // I would like some thing like this
          var result = the html of data 
   });

Thanks for your help

The data variable IS the actual HTML you want...

$.get('ajax/test.html', function (data) {
    var result = data;
    alert(result);
});

Here is a working example


If you then want to use jquery on that HTML data, you must convert it to a JQuery object...

var htmlElement = $(result);
//can now do htmlElement.find(...

Here is an example that pulls the date from the BBC news website
