Parameters: It accepts a parameter “selector2” which is the last selected element before which siblings are going to be found.
Return Value: It returns all the siblings between “selector1” and “selector2”.

jQuery code to show the working of prevUntil() method:

Code #1:




<html>
  
<head>
    <style>
        .sib * {
            display: block;
            border: 2px solid lightgrey;
            color: black;
            padding: 5px;
            margin: 15px;
        }
    </style>
               jquery/3.3.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
            $("li.start").prevUntil("li.stop").css({
                "color": "black",
                "border": "2px solid green"
            });
        });
    </script>
</head>
  
<body>
    <div style="width:400px;" class="sib">
        <ul>
            This is parent !!!
            <li class="stop">list 1 !!!</li>
            <li>first list !</li>
            <li>second list !</li>
            <li>third list !</li>
