How to Use the next() JavaScript Function?

Estimated read time 2 min read

The next() function in JavaScript is part of the jQuery library and is used to access the next sibling element of the selected element in the DOM (Document Object Model). It allows you to manipulate the content and style of the next sibling element.

Here is an example to illustrate how the next() function can be used:

<p class="first">This is the first paragraph.</p>
<p class="second">This is the second paragraph.</p>

    $(".first").next().css("color", "blue");
    $(".first").next().html("The text color has been changed to blue.");

In the above example, we use the $(document).ready() function to ensure that the page has fully loaded before we execute our code. Then, we use the $(".first") selector to select the first paragraph element, and then use the next() function to access the next sibling element. Finally, we change the text color of the second paragraph to blue and update its content.

Note that the next() function only returns the next sibling element, not the next sibling node. If the next sibling node is not an element, it will return an empty set.
