Check if a html element is clicked using JavaScript

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to check if a html element clicked or not using JavaScript.

Consider, we have a following html div element.

<div id="container">Content goes here</div>

Now, we need to check if a div element is clicked or not.

Checking if a element is clicked

To check if a element is clicked, first we need to access the element inside the JavaScript using the document.getElementById() method, then add a click eventListener to it.

Here is an example:

const element = document.getElementbyId("container");

element.addEventListener("click", ()=>{
   alert("element is clicked");
})

In the code above, we have added an alert element is clicked inside the addEventListener() method. So, if a user clicks on the div element it shows an alert inside the browser that element was clicked.

We can also count, how many times an element is clicked like this:

Here is an example:

const element = document.getElementbyId("btn");

let count = 0;

element.addEventListener("click", ()=>{
   count = count + 1;
   alert("element is clicked" + count);
})
