hey try this please": http://jsfiddle.net/MtVxx/2/

Good link for your specific case in here: http://viralpatel.net/blogs/jquery-get-text-element-without-child-element/ (This will only get the text of the element)

Hope this helps, :)

code

jQuery.fn.justtext = function() {

    return $(this).clone()
            .children()
            .remove()
            .end()
            .text();

};

alert($('#mydiv').justtext());?
Answer

The currently accepted answer is pretty horrible in terms of performance, so I felt obligated to write a more lightweight one:

$.fn.mytext = function() {
    var str = '';

    this.contents().each(function() {
        if (this.nodeType == 3) {
            str += this.textContent || this.innerText || '';
        }
    });

    return str;
};

console.log($('#mydiv').mytext());?
Answer

Like Ja?ck's answer but no need for iterating explicitly (via .each()) and collecting textContents:

$('#mydiv').contents().filter(function(){return this.nodeType === 3}).text()

OR, if you can use arrow functions:

$('#mydiv').contents().filter((i, el) => el.nodeType === 3).text()
