addclass jquery list

jquery: addClass 1,2,3 etc. auto to a list

is it possible, to add auto numeric classes to a list by using jquery?


<ul id="list">
<li>Element 1</li>
<li>Element 2</li>
<li>Element 3</li>
<li>Element 4</li>
<li>Element 5</li>

i want to get something like this:

<ul id="list">
<li class="1">Element 1</li>
<li class="2">Element 2</li>
<li class="3">Element 3</li>
<li class="4">Element 4</li>
<li class="5">Element 5</li>

hope there is a solution available 🙂


ok, mhhm but my list has not always a number at the end. so what’s about a classname combination, like “item + number” ? is something like this possible?

<ul id="list">
<li class="item1">Element x</li>
<li class="item2">Element c</li>
<li class="item3">Element a</li>
<li class="item4">Element d</li>
<li class="item5">Element f</li>
