CSS | :not Selector
  • Last Updated : 04 Jan, 2019

The :not(selector) selector is used to style every element that is not the specified by selector. Since it prevents specific items from being selected, it is also known as the negation pseudo-class.

Syntax:

:not(selector) {
  //CSS Property
}

Example-1:




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <title>
        CSS :not selector
    </title>
    <style>
        p {
            color: #000000;
        }
          
        :not(p) {
            color: green;
        }
    </style>
</head>
  
<body style="text-align: center;">
  
    <h1>
            CSS :not selector
    </h1>
  
    <p>
        A computer science portal for geeks.
    </p>
  
    <div>
        Geeks classes an extensive classroom programme.
    </div>
</body>
  
</html>

Output:
notselector

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

    </title>
    <style>
        /* Style everything but not
