General sibling combinator A ~ B

The General sibling combinator represents a "B" element following a "A" element.


Syntax

A ~ B{ preperties }


Point, Note

  • The general sibling combinator is made of the "tilde" (~) character that separates two sequences of simple selectors.
  • The elements represented by the two sequences share the same parent in the document tree.


Example

[style.css]

 h1 ~ p{
   background-color: yellow;
 }


[index.html]

<body>
<h1>Header 1</h1>
<h2>Header 2</h2>
<p>This is a paragraph.</p>
<p>This is a paragraph.</p>
</body>
