Jquery Filter selector becomes very handy for a geek who’s found of lambda function in LINQ. Here are some scenarios where we can easily use filter selector. Its very useful for a complex filter.
Some of the scenarios are;

  1. Dynamically setting the selected option of a dropdownlist
    
      $('#dropdownlistId option').filter(function() {
    return $.trim( $(this).text() ) == "Value to Compare"; })
    .attr('selected',true);
    
    
  2. Dynamically changing the background color of a particular checked checkbox.
    
      $('input:checked').filter(function() { 
    return $.trim( $(this).val() ) == "Value to Compare"; })
    .css('background-color','#fff');
