HTML DOM customElements get() method

The customElements get() method returns the constructor used for a previously-defined custom element.

Syntax:

constructor = customElements.get('custom-element-name');

Parameters:

  • name: The name of the custom element whose constructor you want to return.

Return value: This method returns the constructor for the custom element, or undefined if there is no custom element definition with that name.

Example: In this example, we will define a custom-element and then will get its constructor using this method.
