jQuery Traversing - Siblings


Siblings share the same parent.

With jQuery you can traverse sideways in the DOM tree to find siblings of an element.


Traversing Sideways in The DOM Tree

There are many useful jQuery methods for traversing sideways in the DOM tree:

  • siblings()
  • next()
  • nextAll()
  • nextUntil()
  • prev()
  • prevAll()
  • prevUntil()

jQuery siblings() Method

The siblings() method returns all sibling elements of the selected element.

The following example returns all sibling elements of <h2>:

Example

$(document).ready(function(){
  $("h2").siblings();
});

Try it yourself »

You can also use an optional parameter to filter the search for siblings.

The following example returns all sibling elements of <h2> that are <p> elements:

Example

$(document).ready(function(){
  $("h2").siblings("p");
});

jQuery next() Method

The next() method returns the next sibling element of the selected element.

The following example returns the next sibling of <h2>:

Example

$(document).ready(function(){
  $("h2").next();
});

Try it yourself »


jQuery nextAll() Method

The nextAll() method returns all next sibling elements of the selected element.

The following example returns all next sibling elements of <h2>:

Example

$(document).ready(function(){
  $("h2").nextAll();
});

Try it yourself »


jQuery nextUntil() Method

The nextUntil() method returns all next sibling elements between two given arguments.

The following example returns all sibling elements between a <h2> and a <h6> element:

Example

$(document).ready(function(){
  $("h2").nextUntil("h6");
});

Try it yourself »


jQuery prev(), prevAll() & prevUntil() Methods

The prev(), prevAll() and prevUntil() methods work just like the methods above but with reverse functionality: they return previous sibling elements (traverse backwards along sibling elements in the DOM tree, instead of forward).
