DOM: Change CSS

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

Press the following buttons to change the color.

Color Me

Here's the HTML code:

<p>
<span id="id13959">Color Me</span>
<button id="b1" type="button">RED</button>
<button id="b2" type="button">BLUE</button>
</p>

Here's the JavaScript code:

const xx = document. getElementById("id13959");
const b1 = document. getElementById("b1");
const b2 = document. getElementById("b2");

b1.addEventListener ("click", (() => ( xx.style.color="red" )) , false);
b2.addEventListener ("click", (() => ( xx.style.color="blue" )) , false);

This technique can be used to change the CSS value for any HTML element. All you need to do is to give the HTML tag a id attribute id=name, and define in JavaScript when should the change happen.

You can also get the element by class or tag name, if you don't have a id attribute. See: DOM: Get Elements by ID, Tag, Name, Class, CSS Selector.

CSS Attribute Name in JavaScript

CSS attribute names are dash separated, such as font-size. The corresponding property in JavaScript is camelCase: fontSize.
