How to highlight alternate table row using jQuery ?
  • Last Updated : 24 Mar, 2021

In this article, we will set the highlight on an alternative table row using jQuery. The :nth-child(2n) selector is used to select the alternative row and addClass() method is used to set the style the alternative rows. 

Syntax: 

$(tr:nth-child(2n)").addClass("GFG");

Here, we will create a simple table using <table> tag. The <thead> and <tbody> tags are used to create heading and body elements of table. We use some CSS properties to set the styles. 

Example:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <title>

    <script src=

    <style>
        table {
            margin: 0 auto;
        }
  
        tr,
        th,
        td {
            border: 2px solid black;
            padding: 20px 50px;
        }
  
        th {
            background-color: green;
        }
  
        .GFG {
            background: rgb(145, 145, 145);
        }
    </style>
  
    <script>
        $(document).ready(function () {
            $("table tbody tr:nth-child(2n)").addClass("GFG");
        });
    </script>
</head>
  
<body style="text-align: center;">
    <h1 style="color:green;">
