JQuery after() And insertAfter() Example

After() Method

JQuery After method is used for inserting content after each element in the set of matched elements. In general, it is used to insert things after one or several elements. With after() method, the selector expression preceding the method is the container after which the content is inserted.

JQuery After() Syntax

$(selector).after(content)

It has parameter called content which is required parameter which specifies content to be inserted after selected elements.

<!doctype html>
<head>

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js"></script>
</head>
<h2>JQuery After Method Example</h2>
<script type="text/javascript">
   $(document).ready(function(){
      $("button").click(function(){
        $("p").after("Welcome to JavaBeat!!!");
      });
   });
</script>
<body>
   <button>Click Here</button>
   <p>Hello!!!</p>
</body>
</html>
  • As shown in the above program, we have used the code inside $(document).ready which is an event which fires up when document is ready. It will run once the page document object model is ready for JavaScript code to execute.
  • $(“button”).click(function()) line defines click event which occurs when button is clicked.
  • $(“p”).after(“Welcome to JavaBeat!!!”); line insert this content after the line Hello!!!.
