This tutorial describes how to iterate over elements of some collection in JQuery.

Iterating over elements of collection

To iterate over elements of a collection in JQuery and perform some action for each of them, use the each() function:
$("div").each(function() {
// this will be executed for every DIV element

Within the each() function, the current element which is being iterated is available in the variable $(this):
$("tr").each(function() {
// hide every row in the table

See demo and play with it in our code sandbox
