Definition and Usage

The not() method returns elements that do not match a certain criteria.

This method lets you specify a criteria. Elements that do not match the criteria are returned from the selection, and those that match will be removed.

This method is often used to remove one or more elements from a group of selected elements.

Tip: The not() method is the opposite of the filter() method.


Syntax
