How to get an element by name attribute in JavaScript

In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to get/select an HTML element by using a name attribute in JavaScript.

Consider we have a <input> elements like this.

<input name="email" placeholder="email" />
<input name="password" placeholder="password" />

Now, we need to get the above two elements by name attribute.

The document.querySelector method

To get the element by name attribute, we need to use the document.querySelector() method by passing [attribute = value] as an argument.

const email = document.querySelector('[name=email]');
const password = document.querySelector('[name=password]');

console.log(email);
console.log(password);
