Alternate Div background color


Something is wrong that I am not sure what I'm doing wrong.

I'm trying to alternate my div to display a different color

this is what I have:

  <script language="JavaScript">

 $(".RuleDiv div:odd").css("background-color", "#F4F4F8");
 $(".RuleDiv div:even").css("background-color", "#EFF1F1");

Why not just use the CSS pseudo classes
.RuleDiv:nth-child(odd) {
  background-color: #F4F4F8;

.RuleDiv:nth-child(odd) {
  background-color: #EFF1F1;

Open in new window

Or if you want to do it in JQuery then use the nth-child selector like so
$(".RuleDiv div:nth-child(odd)").css("background-color", "#F4F4F8");
$(".RuleDiv div:nth-child(even)").css("background-color", "#EFF1F1");
