HTML | DOM Section Object
  • Last Updated : 22 Jan, 2019

The Section Object in HTML DOM is used to represent the HTML <section> element. The section element can be accessed by using getElementById() method.

Syntax:

document.getElementById("id")

Where id is assigned to the <section> tag.

Example 1:




<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html
    <head>
        <title>
            HTML DOM section Object
        </title>
    </head>
      
    <body style = "text-align:center;"
  
        <h1 style = "color:green;"
            GeeksForGeeks 
        </h1
          
        <h2>DOM section Object</h2
          
        <button onclick = "Geeks()">
            Click Here
        </button>
          
        <br><br>
  
        <section id = "sec">
            A computer science portal for geeks.
        </section>
          
        <script>
            function Geeks() {
                var txt = document.getElementById("sec");
                txt.style.color = "green";
            }
        </script>
    </body
</html>
