Document Object Model DOM



DOM is the interface between Javascript and HTML+CSS. The browser turns every HTML tag into a Javascript object that we can manipulate. Everything is stored inside the document object.

Select and manipulate

var h1 = document.querySelector("h1"); = "pink";


  • document.getElementById()
  • document.getElementsByClassName()
  • document.getElementsByTagName()
  • document.querySelector()
    • returns the first element that matches a given CSS-style selector
    • document.querySelector("#highlight")
  • document.querySelectorAll()
    • return all matching elements


  • changing an element’s style
  • adding/removing classes
  • changing the content of a tag
  • changing attributes(src, href, etc.)


var tag = document.getElementById(highlight);

// manipulate = "blue"; = "10px solid red";

It’s recommended for styles to be defined in a separated file or files. So just use js to turn on or off, switch between styles.

.some-class {
    color: blue;
    border: 10px solid red;
var tag = document.getElementById(highlight);
// add the css class


    // if the tag has the class name, remove it
    // else, turn it on

Text and content

  • textContent will return a string of all the text contained in a given element.
  • innerHTML is similar, but it returns a string of all HTML contained in a given element.
<p> This is a <strong>good</strong> para</p>
var tag = document.querySelector("p");

// Retrieve the text
tag.textContent; // This is a good para
tag.innerHTML; // This is a <strong>good</strong> para

// alter
tag.textContent = "new";
tag.innerHTML = "<strong>goodbye</strong>";


Use getAttribute() and setAttribute() to read and write attributes like src or href.

<a href="">link</a>
<img src="logo.png">
var link = document.querySelector("a");
link.setAttribute("href", "");


  • Click on a button
  • Hovering over a link
  • Dragging and dropping
  • Pressing the enter key

Process is that we select an element and then add an event listener. Multiple listeners can be added.

List of events ref:

element.addEventListener(type, functionToCall);

// example
var button = document.querySelector("button");
button.addEventListener("click", function() {

Example events

  • mouseover: the moment that mouse starts being on the element
  • mouseout: the moment that mouse leaves the element
  • input: the value of input tag changes
