The HTML DOM Style’s font property is used to change the element’s font properties. It can be used to change the font style, weight, size, and family. 


  • To set the font style : = "font-properties font-size font-family;"
  • To get the current font style:;

Return Values: It returns a string value, which represents different font properties of the element

Property value: It is a string which has values like font properties, font size, and font family. The properties are required in the following order :

  • Font style
  • Font variant
  • Font weight
  • Font size
  • Font height
  • Font family

Approach: We have a paragraph element with and ID of text. We created a function in JavaScript that takes in a string value in variable gfg as a parameter and sets the ‘text‘ ID element’s style.font property to ‘gfg‘. We call this function from the buttons, and supply property values appropriately.
