:even Selector in JQuery



version added: 1.0jQuery(‘:even’)

In particular, note that the 0-based indexing means that, counter-intuitively, :even selects the first element, third element, and so on within the matched set.


Finds even table rows, matching the first, third and so on (index 0, 2, 4 etc.).

<!DOCTYPE html>

  table {
  <script src="/scripts/jquery-1.4.js"></script>
	<table border="1">
    <tr><td>Row with Index #0</td></tr>
    <tr><td>Row with Index #1</td></tr>

    <tr><td>Row with Index #2</td></tr>
    <tr><td>Row with Index #3</td></tr>
<script>$("tr:even").css("background-color", "#bbbbff");</script>
