JQuery color every other row in a table

This is so simple and so useful that there is really no excuse to not to have this on your html tables, and it is pretty too 🙂

To change the color of every other row in a table simply add this code to an event that happens after the table has been created:

$("tr:odd").css("background-color", "#bbbbff")

The $(“tr:odd”) selects every tr row with an odd number and the .css() changes its color to #bbbbff – It is as simple as that

Tested on JQuery 1.9.1 and Chrome v28
