can't get autosize plugin to work with hidden div.

I'm having trouble getting Jack Moore's .autosize plugin to work with a textarea nested within a hidden div.

I have a hidden div that contains a printable report form. It's hidden because it only exists for printing and not for viewing on screen.

It has a textarea tag that is bound to the .autosize plugin that automatically resizes the height of the text area depending on the amount of text in the box before it's printed.
<div id='prt-workorder-window' style='display:none;'>
<textarea id='wo-Notes'></textarea>

I've tried using the jquery ":hidden" selector as part of the overall jquery selector
$('#prt-workorder-window:hidden textarea#wo-Notes').val(text).autosize();

but i can't get it to work. What am i doing wrong?

Nevermind, I changed the selector syntax to:
$('#prt-workorder-window textarea#wo-Notes').val(text);

It now works.
