It is very common to read and modify the content of a web page, when working with jQuery. To do this, we need to, first, find the element(s) that we wish to work with. Selector support in jQuery helps us in finding the elements.

Normally in JavaScript, finding elements is extremely cumbersome, unless we need to find a single element having a value specified in the ID attribute.

jQuery helps us find elements based on their IDs, classes, types, attributes, values of attributes and more. Finding elements in jQuery is based on CSS selectors and is very powerful.

As this is a very common task, the jQuery provides several constructors take a selector query as an argument, allowing us to locate element(s) with a very concise piece of for optimal efficiency. You instantiate the jQuery object simply by writing jQuery() or using the $().

The syntax for using a jQuery constructor to find DOM element(s) is as under:

jQuery(<selector query);

We may also write the above line of code as under:

$(<selector query >);

The above jQuery constructor would return a jQuery object depending upon the selector query we pass to it. We can then use that object to work with the element(s) that were matched.
