What are the methods in jQuery to manipulate attributes?

jQuery comes with a lot of methods to manipulate attributes. These are DOM related methods. The attributes include,

  • text() – This method sets or returns the text content of elements selected.
  • html() – This method sets or returns the content of elements selected.
  • val() – This method sets or returns the value of form fields.

You can try to run the following code to learn how to manipulate attributes with text() and html() methods −


<!DOCTYPE html>
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.2.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
     alert("Using text- " + $("#demo").text());
     alert("Using html()- " + $("#demo").html());

<p id="demo">This is <b>demo</b> text.</p>

<button id="button1">Text</button>
<button id="button2">HTML</button>
