JavaScript Remove Element

        

In this section, you will learn how to remove HTML element using JavaScript.

JavaScript provides several methods which allow the user to remove particular HTML element. Here we are going to remove a div element. For this purpose, we have created a div element. The method document.getElementById() grabs the element of specified id. Assign this element in the variable 'el'. Now in order to remove this element, we have used the variable 'el' with the JavaScript property parentNode that will returns a reference to the node's parent node and then refer to the JavaScript method removeChild() that will remove the specified element. 

Here is the code:

<html>
<h2>Remove Element</h2>
<script>
function removeElement(){
var el = document.getElementById('id');
var remElement = (el.parentNode).removeChild(el);
}
</script>
<input type="button" value="Remove Div" onclick="removeElement();" /><br><br>
<div id="id" style="background-color:lightBlue;width:90;height:20;border:1px solid black">Hello World</div>
</html>
