:evenS2C Home « Selectors « :even

Even index selector.

Shorthand version $(':even')

Description

The :even selector, selects even elements within the matched set.

Like all the positional selectors:even uses a zero-based index to select from previously filtered elements.

Being a jQuery extension the :even pseudo selector is not part of any current CSS specification. Therefore :even cannot take advantage of the performance boost provided by the native DOM querySelectorAll() method.
