In-Depth Information
Matching odd and even children is a common operation, so the keywords odd and
even can also be used to match every other row in a table, for example.
tr:nth-child(even) {} /* even table rows */
tr:nth-child(odd) {} /* odd table rows */
As shown, the argument to :nth-child() can be an integer, the keywords even
or odd , or an expression in the form of an+b . In the expression form, the keyword n is a
counter that iterates through all the child elements. The counter might be negative; in
that case, the iteration occurs backward. It can be used to select a specific number of
first children.
p:nth-child(-n+3) {} /* first three children */
The math and arguments used together with :nth-child() are also valid for the next
three pseudo-classes, all of which start with :nth .
The :nth-of-type(an + b) pseudo-class matches the b th element of the selected type
after the siblings of that type have been divided into groups of a elements.
p:nth-of-type(2) {} /* second paragraph sibling */
p:nth-of-type(2n) {} /* even paragraph siblings */
p:nth-of-type(2n+1) {} /* odd paragraph siblings */
The behavior of this pseudo-class is similar to :nth-child , but it matches siblings
of the same type of the specified element instead of matching children of the specified
<p>Second and even</p>
Similar to the other :nth pseudo-classes, the keywords odd and even can be used to
match siblings of the same type whose index is odd or even.
p:nth-of-type(even) {} /* even paragraph siblings */
p:nth-of-type(odd) {} /* odd paragraph siblings */
