JQuery Remove duplicate elements – Easy method

JQuery Remove duplicate elements: It’s very easy to remove duplicate elements from a list using jQuery.

Demo:

Let’s say we have below list:

jquery remove duplicate elements

Here multiple duplicate values are there, Test 1, Test 3 and Test 2. Using jQuery we can easily remove them, refer the below code.

var seen = {};
$('p').each(function() {
    var txt = $(this).text();
    if (seen[txt])
         $(this).remove();
    else
	 seen[txt] = true;
});
  • seen is an object which maps any previously seen text to¬†true.
  • Loop all p elements.
  • If any seen[txt] is exists then it will be removed using remove().

Full Code :

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
	<title>Remove duplicate Elements</title>
</head>
<body>
	<p>Test 1</p>
	<p>Test 2</p>
