HTML | DOM Style font Property

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:;

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.
