Hi There,

i got a defect in your code based on ":last selector".

i am trying to get the last matched element of the table but your code is not working.

My Code:

<table border="1">


<td> TD #0 </td>

<td> TD #1 </td>

<td> TD #2 </td>



<td> TD #3 </td>

<td> TD #4 </td>

<td> TD #5 </td>



<td> TD #6 </td>

<td> TD #7 </td>

<td> TD #8 </td>



Script part:

$("tr:last").css({ backgroundColor: "yellow", fontWeight: "bolder" });

It is not working properly :-(

Note:- the below script is working fine with "td" tag. $("td:last").css("background-color", "purple"); //Selects the last matched element.
