We can traverse the sideways in the Dom tree with the help of jQuery and find the siblings of an element.
The sibling elements share the same parent.

Traversing Sideways: jQuery methods to traverse the sideways in dom tree.

  1. siblings(): The siblings() is an inbuilt method in jQuery which is used to find all siblings elements of the selected element.
    Syntax:
    $(selector).siblings(function)
  2. next() & nextAll(): The next() is an inbuilt function in jQuery which is used to return the next sibling of the selected element.
    Syntax:
    $(selector).next()
  3. nextUntil(): The nextUntil() is an inbuilt method in jQuery which is used to find all sibling elements between two given elements.
    Syntax:



    $(selector1).nextUntil(selector2)
  4. prev() & prevAll(): The prev() is an inbuilt function in jQuery which is used to return the previous sibling element of the selected element.
    Syntax:
    $(selector).prev()
  5. prevUntil(): The prevUntil() is an inbuilt method in jQuery which is used to find all the previous sibling elements between two given elements.
    Syntax:
    $(selector1).nextUntil(selector2)

Example-1: Using “siblings() method”.




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <style>
        .block {
            display: block;
            border: 1px solid black;
            padding: 10px;
            color: black;
        }
    </style>
    <script src=
  </script>
    <script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
            $("h3").siblings().css({
                "color": "green",
                "border": "3px solid green"
            });
        });
    </script>
</head>
  
<body>
    <div class="block">
        <h2 class="block">Geeks</h2>
        <h3 class="block">for</h3>
        <h4 class="block">Geeks</h4>
    </div>
</body>
  
</html>

Output:

Example-2: Using “next() method”.




<html>

            margin: 15px;
        }
    </style>
    <script src=
  </script>
    <script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
            $("h3").next().css({
                "color": "black",
                "border": "2px solid green"
            });
        });
    </script>
</head>
  
<body class="next">
    <div>
        This is parent element !
        <p>This is first paragraph
      </p>
        <span>first span box </span>
        <h2>heading 2 !</h2>
