I'm trying to use 'index' to alternate row color, problem is the row header is counted. I tried adding +1 to the index and it stops alternating color all together... Help

$('#GridView1 tr:not(:last-child)').each(function (index, row) 
   {
            $('td:gt(2)', this).each(function ()
             {                     
                if (index+1 % 2 == 0) 
                {
                   $(this).addClass('red');
                }
            })
        });

<style type="text/css">
     .red { background-color:Red; }
</style>

<table cellspacing="0" border="1" id="GridView1" ">
        <tr>
        <th>State</th>
        <th>List Name</th>
        <th>Date</th>
        <th>Jones-Bob</th>

        <tr">

Any reason to use jquery to do this? CSS can do it itself

 table tr:not(:first-child):nth-child(odd) { background-color:red; }

Though if you set it to even then the first row would be skipped anyway

 table tr:nth-child(even) { background-color:red; }

I must use Jquery and not CSS in this case I have more Gridview conditional cell formatting to do. Alt row color seemed like an easier way to ask the initial question concerning header-row 'skipping'...

I'm mobile today, would the code below work?

$('#GridView1 tr:not(:first-child):not(:last-child):nth-child(odd)').each(function (index, row)

Well jquery observes the same format as the css above. You don't need an each

$('#GridView1 tr:not(:first-child,:last-child):nth-child(odd)').css("background","red")
