Select multiple elements – JavaScript

Length: 10 minutes

Summary

let elements = document.querySelectorAll('selector');

Details

To select multiple elements, you can use the querySelectorAll() method. Just like the querySelector() method, you usually use it on the document object.

<ul>
  <li>Item 1</li>
  <li>Item 2</li>
  <li>Item 3</li>
</ul>
let elements = document.querySelectorAll('li');

You can treat this list of elements like an array. To select a specific element, use square brackets, like this:

let elements = document.querySelectorAll('li');
// first element
elements[0]
// second element
elements[1]

To perform an action on all of the elements in the list, you can use a loop, like this:

let elements = document.querySelectorAll('li');
for (const element of elements) {
  console.log(element);
}

Demo

Exercises

Try adding the code in the last snippet with the loop to your main.js file.
