There are two procedures to select an element with multiple classes by using jQuery. Both the procedures are described below with the proper example.

Using filter() Method: By using filter() method we can filter out all the elements that do not match the selected criteria and those matches will be returned.

  • Syntax:
    $(selector).filter(criteria, function(index))
  • Example:




    <!DOCTYPE html> 
    <html
      
    <head
        <title
            jQuery | Select an element
            with multiple classes
        </title
          
        <style
            h1 { 
                color: green; 
            
            body { 
                text-align: center; 
            
        </style
      
        <script src=
        </script>
    </head
      
    <body
        <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
      
        <h3>
            Select an element with
            multiple classes
        </h3
      
        <div class="geeks">GeeksforGeeks</div>
        <div class="geeks geeks1">jQuery</div>
      
        <div class="geeks1">
            Select an element with
            multiple classes
        </div>
      
        <div class="geeks1 geeks">Using</div>
        <div class="geeks geeks1 geeks2">
            filter() method
        </div>
      
        <script>
            $(document).ready(function(){
                $(".geeks").filter(".geeks1").css(
                    "background-color", "yellow");
              
                $(".geeks.geeks2").filter(".geeks1")
                    .css("background-color", "green");
            });
        </script>
    </body
      
    </html>

    
    

  • Output:

Using .class Selector: By using .class Selector specifies the class for an element to be selected. It should not begin with a number. It gives styling to several HTML elements.

  • Syntax:
    $(".class1.class2.class3...")
  • Example:




    <!DOCTYPE html> 
    <html
      
    <head
        <title
            jQuery | Select an element
            with multiple classes
        </title
          
        <style
            h1 { 
                color: green; 
            
            body { 
                text-align: center; 
            
        </style
          
        <script src=
        </script>
    </head
      
    <body
        <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1
          
        <h3
            Select an element with
            multiple classes
        </h3
          
        <div class="geeks">GeeksforGeeks</div>
        <div class="geeks geeks1">jQuery</div>
          
        <div class="geeks1">
            Select an element with
            multiple classes
        </div>
          
        <div class="geeks1 geeks">Using</div>
        <div class="geeks geeks1 geeks2">
            .class Selector Method
        </div>
          
        <script>
            $(document).ready(function(){
                $(".geeks1").css(
                    "background-color", "yellow");
                  
                $(".geeks").css(
                    "background-color", "white");
      
                $(".geeks.geeks2").css(
                    "background-color", "green");
            });
        </script>
    </body
      
    </html>
