Hide a button onclick using JavaScript

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to hide an button onclick using JavaScript.

Consider, we have a following html button element.

<button id="btn">Hello</button>

To hide a button by clicking on it, first we need to access the button element inside the JavaScript using the document.getElementById() method, add a click eventListener to it then on each click set its style.display property to “none”`.

Here is an example:

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

button.addEventListener("click", ()=>{
   button.style.display= "none";
})

When we set a style.display property to none, it removes the button element from the dom.

Using style.visibility property

We can hide a button onclick by setting the element object style.visibility property to hidden.

Here is an example:

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

button.addEventListener("click", ()=>{
   button.style.visibility= "hidden";
})

In the example above, we have added a click event listener to the button element and set its style.visibility to hidden. so whenever a user clicks on the button it hides the element from a dom.

The main difference between style.display and style.visibility properties are:

  • When we set a style.display property to none, it removes the element completely from the dom .

  • When we set a style.display property to hidden, it just hides the element but doesn’t remove it in the dom.
