Remove background colour of row with a checkbox contained in it

This mess of code is generated by a Grid control:

<tr class="rgAltRow" style.backgroundColor=";;#FDC179&#39;" id="rpbOutcomes_i0_rgProcedures_ctl00__1" style="background-color:#FFD666;">
		<td class="rgGroupCol">&nbsp;</td><td style="display:none;">143</td><td style="display:none;">&nbsp;</td><td valign="top">Urodynamics (with catheter)</td><td align="center" valign="top">7B2B7</td><td align="center" valign="top">M47.4</td><td align="center">
                                                                        <span style="display: none"><input id="rpbOutcomes_i0_rgProcedures_ctl00_ctl07_chkLeft" type="checkbox" name="rpbOutcomes$i0$rgProcedures$ctl00$ctl07$chkLeft" /><label for="rpbOutcomes_i0_rgProcedures_ctl00_ctl07_chkLeft">L</label></span>
                                                                        <span style="display: none"><input id="rpbOutcomes_i0_rgProcedures_ctl00_ctl07_chkRight" type="checkbox" name="rpbOutcomes$i0$rgProcedures$ctl00$ctl07$chkRight" /><label for="rpbOutcomes_i0_rgProcedures_ctl00_ctl07_chkRight">R</label></span>&nbsp;
                                                                    </td><td align="center">
                                                                        <span id="rpbOutcomes_i0_rgProcedures_ctl00_ctl07_txtSite_wrapper" class="riSingle RadInput RadInput_Default" style="width:80px;"><input id="rpbOutcomes_i0_rgProcedures_ctl00_ctl07_txtSite" name="rpbOutcomes$i0$rgProcedures$ctl00$ctl07$txtSite" size="20" maxlength="50" class="riTextBox riEnabled" type="text" value="" /><input id="rpbOutcomes_i0_rgProcedures_ctl00_ctl07_txtSite_ClientState" name="rpbOutcomes_i0_rgProcedures_ctl00_ctl07_txtSite_ClientState" type="hidden" /></span>&nbsp;
                                                                    </td><td align="center">
                                                                        <span class="primaryProc"><input id="rpbOutcomes_i0_rgProcedures_ctl00_ctl07_chkPrimary" type="checkbox" name="rpbOutcomes$i0$rgProcedures$ctl00$ctl07$chkPrimary" checked="checked" onclick="setPrimaryProcedure(this);" /></span>
                                                                    </td><td align="center">
                                                                       <input id="rpbOutcomes_i0_rgProcedures_ctl00_ctl07_chkSecondary" type="checkbox" name="rpbOutcomes$i0$rgProcedures$ctl00$ctl07$chkSecondary" onclick="setSecondaryProcedure(this);" />

Open in new window

You will see I have a row - contained in this row is a Checked checkbox with the class ID of primaryProc.

What I want to do is remove the background colour of this row.

Here is what I have at the moment but it doesn't work:

 $(".primaryProc").style.backgroundColor = "#fff"

Open in new window

I have also tried removing the colour attribute and used "" instead.

$("#rpbOutcomes_i0_rgProcedures_ctl00__1").css('background-color', '');

Thanks but won't this only work for that one cell, I didn't say but any row in the grid could be set with a tick.

This can't be hard coded, its got to work for any row in the table.

However there will only ever be 1 row at a time with a checkbox with the primaryProc class.

I have this working after a fashion. By changing my code to this:


Is there a more elegant solution than .Parent().Parent().

Thank you jayakrishnabh for the correct syntax for applying the style.
