How to Delete Elements from the DOM Using JavaScript?

Estimated read time 1 min read

In JavaScript, you can delete elements from the Document Object Model (DOM) using the remove() method or the removeChild() method.

Here’s an example of how to use the remove() method to delete an element:

const myElement = document.getElementById("my-element");
myElement.remove();

In this example, we first use the getElementById() method to get a reference to the element we want to delete. We then call the remove() method on the element to remove it from the DOM.

Here’s an example of how to use the removeChild() method to delete an element:

const myParent = document.getElementById("my-parent");
const myChild = document.getElementById("my-child");
myParent.removeChild(myChild);

In this example, we first use the getElementById() method to get references to the parent and child elements. We then call the removeChild() method on the parent element, passing in the child element as an argument, to remove the child element from the parent.

Note that when using the removeChild() method, you need to call it on the parent element and pass in the child element as an argument. Additionally, you can store the reference to the deleted child element in a variable if you need to access it later.
