In jQuery, there is two way to change the width of an element. One way is using .css(‘width’) and other way is using .width().

For example

$('#mydiv').css('width','300px');
$('#mydiv').width(100);
  • The difference in .css(‘width’) and .width() is the data type of value we specify or return from the both functions.
  • In .css(‘width’) we have to add “px” in the width value while in .width() we don’t have to add.
  • When you want to get the width of “mydiv” element then .css(‘width’) will return ‘300px’ while .width() will return only integer value 300.
