Javascript Course

The function presented in this page can be used to delete and add a css class with JavaScript to multiple HTML elements.
- The function has 3 parameters, receives an Array with the IDs of HTML elements from which will delete the class, another Array with the IDs of HTML elements to which will add the class, and the class value.
Here is the function, called delAddClass().
// delete class from IDs in "dlcls" (array with IDs), add class to IDs in "adcls" (array with IDs)
// "cls" contains the class
function delAddClass(dlcls, adcls, cls) {
 // from: https://coursesweb.net/javascript/
  // get number of elements in array parameters
  var nr_dlcls = dlcls.length;
  var nr_adcls = adcls.length;

  // traverse each array, delete "class" of "dlcls", add class to "adcls"
  for(var i=0; i<nr_dlcls; i++) {
    if(document.getElementById(dlcls[i])) document.getElementById(dlcls[i]).className = '';
  }
  for(var i=0; i<nr_adcls; i++) {
    if(document.getElementById(adcls[i])) document.getElementById(adcls[i]).className = cls;
  }
}
- Example. Two buttons that call the delAddClass() function, setting /changing CSS class of some DIVs.
