The jQuery syntax is tailor-made for selecting HTML elements and performing some action on the element(s).

Basic syntax is: $(selector).action()

  •     A $ sign to define/access jQuery
  •     A (selector) to "query (or find)" HTML elements
  •     A jQuery action() to be performed on the element(s)

Examples:

$(this).hide() - hides the current element.
$("p").hide() - hides all <p> elements.
$(".test").hide() - hides all elements with class="test".
$("#test").hide() - hides the element with id="test".
