JavaScript Create Element With Attributes

In this tutorial we will show you the solution of JavaScript create element with attributes, here we defined onload event on body tag for load ‘fun()’ when user loads it will initialized then we created ‘div’ element with attribute class.

Here we defined onload event on body tag for begin fun() function when user loads this program.

Within function we created ‘div’ element and stored to variable ‘divEle’ then we sets attribute ‘class’ with value ‘dCls’ by setAttribute() method.

Using ‘divEle’ we added some style on that element those are ‘width set to ‘40%’, height set to ‘20rem’, background color sets to ‘yellow’ and added text ‘Hi John’’.

Finally we appended element div as child for body tag.

<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>Create Element</title>
    <body onload="fun()">
            function fun(){
                const divEle=document.createElement('div');
                divEle.textContent='Hi John';

  2. The<html> tag is used to indicate the beginning of HTML document.
  3. As above shown <head> tag is contains information about webpage and external file links are declared here. <title> tag is used for set the webpage title.
  4. Both <head> and <title> tags having their pair end tag, so we need to close the ending tags respectively. If you’re not closed anyone of ending tag properly that is also affect the webpage result.
  5. <body> tag is beginning of main coding part because it contain coding of entire website blocks and elements described here then we added onload event for load fun() method when loading this program on browser.
  6. In script tag we defined fun() function, here first we created element ‘div’ and stored to variable ‘divEle’ then we added class attribute value ‘dCls’ by setAttribute() method.
  7. We defined style for div tag, div width set to ‘40%’, height set to ‘20rem’ and background color set to ‘yellow’.
  8. For insert any text on element we need to use ‘textContent’ style property with any text here we given text is ‘Hi John’.
  9. We need to append this div element on webpage so we appended div element on body of html page.
  10. Both </body>,</html> tags closed respectively. </body> tag indicates the end of body, Then </html> tag indicates the end of HTML document.
