JavaScript Output


JavaScript does not have any built-in display functions.


JavaScript Display Possibilities

JavaScript can "display" data in different ways:

  • Writing into an alert box, using window.alert().
  • Writing into the HTML output using document.write().
  • Writing into an HTML element, using innerHTML.
  • Writing into the browser console, using console.log().

Using window.alert()

You can use an alert box to display data:.

Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<h1>My First Web Page</h1>
<p>My first paragraph.</p>

<script>
window.alert(5 + 6);
</script>

</body>
</html>

Using document.write()

For testing purposes, it is convenient to use document.write():

Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<h1>My First Web Page</h1>
<p>My first paragraph.</p>

<script>
document.write(5 + 6);
</script>

</body>
</html>

Using document.write() after an HTML document is fully loaded, will delete all existing HTML:

Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<h1>My First Web Page</h1>
<p>My first paragraph.</p>

<button onclick="myFunction()">Try it</button>

<script>
function myFunction() {
    document.write(5 + 6);
}
</script>

</body>
</html>

Note The document.write() method should be used only for testing.


Using innerHTML

To access an HTML element, JavaScript can use the document.getElementById(id ) method.

The id attribute identifies the HTML element. The innerHTML property is the element content:

Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<h1>My First Web Page</h1>
<p>My First Paragraph</p>

<p id="demo"></p>

<script>
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = 5 + 6;
</script>

</body>
</html>

Note In our examples, we often use the innerHTML method (writing into an HTML element).


Using console.log()

In your browser console, you can use the console.log() method to display data.

Activate the browser console with F12, and select "Console" in the menu.

Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<h1>My First Web Page</h1>
<p>My first paragraph.</p>

<script>
console.log(5 + 6);
</script>

</body>
</html>
