:oddS2C Home « Selectors « :odd

Odd index selector.

Shorthand version $(':odd')

Description

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

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

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

Syntax


Signature Description
