HTML | DOM Paragraph Object

The DOM paragraph object is used to represent the HTML <p> element. The p element is accessed by getElementById().

Syntax:

document.getElementById("id"); 

Where ‘id’ is the ID assigned to the p tag.



Below programs illustrate the p object:

Example-1: In the below program the paragraph element is assigned the id = “s”. On click of the button, the paragraph element is accessed and the color of the paragraph text is changed.
