:gt()    ** DEPRECATED **S2C Home « Selectors « :gt()

Greater than index selector.

Shorthand version $(':gt(index)')

Description

The :gt() selector, select all elements with an index greater than the specified index within the matched set.

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

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

The same results can be achieved with better performance using $("cssSelector").slice(index).

This method was deprecated in jQuery 3.4.
