Adding a feature to a practice project


Im trying to build some kind of tool manager. so far all the functionallity is working.

I want to add an history log feature. if u look at the project i have 1 table that is for the taken tools and i created another table for the history.

What i want to do is when i press the X button, I want to get the specified row that i clicked on and insert it into the history table with the time that i returned the tool.

so far this is what i did: current snapshot: https://w.trhou.se/mdk9oeeol9

I basically want to take this lines from the table with the inputs from the users:

  row.innerHTML = `
            <td><input value="${tool.name}" disabled/></td>
            <td><input value="${tool.toolName}" disabled/></td>
            <td><input value="${tool.number}" disabled/></td>

and insert only this td tags to the second table(To the history-list table)

so far what i did, is this:

             const historyList = document.querySelector("#history-list");
                 const historyRow = tr.innerHTML;

i selected the history-list table and i stored the tr element with the userinput inside historyRow before i removed it so the data of the removed item will be saved.

i dont have the full way for solving it by if i console.log the historyRow i get this:

            <td><input value="tool one" disabled=""></td>
            <td><input value="scissors" disabled=""></td>
            <td><input value="20" disabled=""></td>
             <td><a href="#" class="btn btn-danger btn-sm delete">X</a></td>
             <td><a href="#" class="btn btn-danger btn-sm edit">Edit</a></td>
             <td>22.7.2019, 22:51:19</td>

so i thought i can select all the td tags like that:

const something   =  parentRow.querySelectorAll("TD");

and then loop through all of the array and somehow extract only the items i want to but it didnt worked..

I will really really appreciate any insights,help.
