jquery, find next element by class

How can i find the next element by class.

i tried with

$(obj).next('.class');
but this returns classes only in
$(obj)
parent.
I need to take the next element anywhere throughout the code by class name.
Because my code looks like

<table>
<tr><td><div class="class">First</div></td></tr>
<tr><td><div class="class">Second</div></td></tr>
</table>


Is this possible?

Answer

In this case you need to go up to the <tr> then use .next(), like this:

$(obj).closest('tr').next().find('.class');

Or if there may be rows in-between without the .class inside, you can use .nextAll(), like this:

$(obj).closest('tr').nextAll(':has(.class):first').find('.class');
