Prototype siblings() Method

This method collects all of element's siblings and returns them as an array of extended elements.

Two elements are siblings if they have the same parent. So for example, the head and body elements are siblings (their parent is the html element).

Syntax

element.siblings();

Return Value

  • Returns an array of HTML elements.

Example

<html>
<head>
<title>Prototype examples</title>

<script type="text/javascript" 
   src="/javascript/prototype.js">
</script>
<script>

function showResult()
{

   var arr = $('mutsu').siblings();
   arr.each(function(node){
      alert(node.nodeName + ': ' + node.innerHTML);
   });

}

</script>
</head>

<body">

  <p id="test">Click the button to see the result.</p>
  
  <ul>
     <li id="golden-delicious">Golden Delicious</li>
     <li id="mutsu">Mutsu</li>
     <li id="mcintosh">McIntosh</li>
     <li id="ida-red">Ida Red</li>
  </ul>

  <input type="button" value="Click" onclick="showResult();"/>
