Get current rowIndex of table in jQuery

My table cell gets highlighted when clicked. I need to find the rowIndex of highlighted cell.
I tried doing like this

$(".ui-state-highlight").index(); // Results to 0


I tried this too...

$('td').click(function(){

var row_index = $(this).parent().index('tr');

var col_index = $(this).index('tr:eq('+row_index+') td');

alert('Row # '+(row_index)+' Column # '+(col_index));

});
// Results : Row # -1 Column # -1


I went to through this post and tried the first answer, still couldn't get the result.

Answer

Try this,

$('td').click(function(){
   var row_index = $(this).parent().index();
   var col_index = $(this).index();
});

If you need the index of table contain td then you can change it to

var row_index = $(this).parent('table').index();
