BeautyTips is a jQuery tooltips plugin which uses the canvas drawing element in the HTML5 spec in order to dynamically draw tooltips (sometimes called “talk bubbles” or “help balloons”) associated with a html element on the page. These tips are highly configurable and can be triggered in many different ways.

JQuery and alternating table row colors

Filed under: Development — adallow @ 6:45 am

From http://www.packtpub.com/article/jquery-table-manipulation-part2

Check out the link for more details and more complex examples.

Can be as simple as two lines of code to alternate the background color:

$(document).ready(function() {

$(‘table.sortable tbody tr:odd’).addClass(‘odd’);

$(‘table.sortable tbody tr:even’).addClass(‘even’);


If we declare background colors for the odd and even classes as follows, we can see the rows in alternating shades of gray:

tr.even {

background-color: #eee;


tr.odd {

background-color: #ddd;
