jQuery next() method

jQueryWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The next() selector in jQuery is used to return the next sibling element of the selected element.

Syntax

The syntax is as follows −

$(selector).next(filter)

Above, the parameter filter is a selector expression to narrow down the next sibling search

Example

Let us now see an example to implement the jQuery next() selector −

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style>
   .demo * {
      display: block;
      border: 3px dashed red;
      padding: 3px;
      margin: 25px;
   }
   .one {
      border: 2px solid yellow;
   }
</style>
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.4.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
   $(document).ready(function(){
      $("span.test").next().addClass("one");
   });
</script>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Heading One</h1>
<div class="demo" style="width:600px;">This is our demo text in div.
<p>child
<span>grandchild</span>
<span class="test">grandchild</span>
<span>grandchild</span>
</p>
<p>child
<span>grandchild</span>
