How to target an element by its class in jQuery


Recommended Posts

One of the best things about jQuery is its powerful and easy-to-use selector system.


So how do you select an item in HTML by its class name?


Let's say I have an element with a class of "blue". I could select this element in jQuery using the following code.





Simple as that. Note that all we had to do was place a period before the name of the class. This period tells jQuery that you are attempting to select a class.
