Display array items on a div element on click of button using vanilla JavaScript

JavascriptWeb DevelopmentObject Oriented Programming

To embed the elements of an array inside a div, we just need to iterate over the array and keep appending the element to the div

This can be done like this −

Example

const myArray = ["stone","paper","scissors"];
const embedElements = () => {
   myArray.forEach(element => {
      document.getElementById('result').innerHTML +=
      `<div>${element}</div><br />`;
      // here result is the id of the div present in the DOM
   });
};

This code makes the assumption that the div in which we want to display the elements of array has an id ‘result’.

The complete code for this will be −

Example

 Live Demo

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
<title>Document</title>
</head>
<body>
   <div id="result"></div>
   <button onclick="embedElements()">Show Data</button>
<script>
{
   const myArray = ["stone","paper","scissors"];
   function embedElements(){
      myArray.forEach(el => {
         document.getElementById('result').innerHTML +=`<div>${el}</div><br />`;
         // here result is the id of the div present in the dom
      });
   };
}
</script>
</body>
</html>
