In this article, we will count every element (including head, body, etc) in the document using jQuery. To count all HTML elements, we use length property. The length property is used to count number of the elements of the jQuery object. 

Syntax:

$(selector).length

where selector is the object whose length is to be calculated.

Example:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
 
<head>
   
    <!-- Import jQuery cdn library -->
    <script src=
    </script>
 
    <script>
        $(document).ready(function () {
            $("button").click(function () {
                var count = $(".GFG").find("*").length;
                $("p").after("<h3>Total Div Elements: "
                    + count);
            });
        });
    </script>
</head>
 
<body style="text-align: center;">
    <h1 style="color: green;">
