JavaScript Toggle Class

Working as a web developer, you need to often add, remove, and toggle CSS classes based on the user interactions with elements on the web page.

JavaScript Toggle Class

Toggling the class means if there is no class name assigned to the element, then a class name can be assigned to it dynamically.

Toggle between adding and removing a class name from an element with JavaScript!

Example:

Step1.

Add HTML

Toggle between adding a class name to the div element with id=”myDIV” (in this example we use a button to toggle the class name).

<button onclick="myFunction()">Click me</button>

<div id="myDIV">
  This is a DIV element.
</div>

Step2.

Add CSS

Add a class name to toggle:

.mystyle {
  width: 100%;
  padding: 25px;
  background-color: lightblue;
  color: red;
  font-size: 25px;
}

Step3.

Add JavaScript

Get the <div> element with id=”myDIV” and toggle between the “mystyle” class:

function myFunction() {
  var element = document.getElementById("myDIV");
  element.classList.toggle("mystyle");
}

Output:

This is a DIV element.

Based on the knowledge above I created another example using SVG and JavaScript to toggle elements. To another see the example click here.
