# Get the last item from node list without using length property in JavaScript?

Let’s say the following is our table −

<table id="demo" border="1">
<tr>
<td>John</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>David</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Mike</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>

Use the following with text() to get last item −

$('table tr:last td') ## Example Live Demo <!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initialscale=1.0"> <title>Document</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.12.1/themes/base/jquery-ui.css"> <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.js"></script> <script src="https://code.jquery.com/ui/1.12.1/jquery-ui.js"></script> </head> <body> <table id="demo" border="1"> <tr> <td>John</td> </tr> <tr> <td>David</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Mike</td> </tr> </table> <script> var lastValue=$('table tr:last td').text();
console.log("The last value is="+lastValue);
</script>
</body>
</html>

To run the above program, save the file name “anyName.html(index.html)” and right click on the file. Select the option “Open with Live Server” in VS Code editor.
