How to create a Zebra Stripes table effect using jQuery ?

  • Last Updated : 24 Jan, 2021

Given an HTML document with a table and the task is to create a Zebra Stripes table effect on the table using jQuery.

Approach : To achieve the Zebra Stripes table effect, use the below code snippet:

Attention reader! Don’t stop learning now. Get hold of all the important HTML concepts with the Web Design for Beginners | HTML  course.

$(function() {
    $("table tr:nth-child(odd)").addClass("zebrastripe");
});

In the above function, zebrastripe is the class name used and odd depicts that odd number of rows will have colored stripes.

To change the even row stripes just use : 



$(function() {
    $("table tr:nth-child(even)").addClass("zebrastripe");
})

In the below demonstration of the above approach the jQuery-3.5.1.js contains the source code.

Example: Below is the demonstration of the above approach.
