I want to create new divs as the page loads. These divs will appear as an ordered group which changes depending upon external data from a JSON file. I will need to do this with a for loop because there are over 100 divs needed.
So, I need to be able to change each created div in regards to height, width, top/left and so on. Yet,
document.getElementById("created_div").style.whatever does nothing, I can't even see a single new div appear. I've set the new divs height/width to 500px, background to "red", and so on, but no new divs are definitely appearing.
What am I doing wrong?
var div = document.createElement('div');
div.style.left = '32px';
div.style.top = '-16px';
div.className = 'ui-modal';
div = document.getElementById('test');
array = document.getElementsByTagName('div');
array = document.getElementsByClassName('ui-modal');
div = document.querySelector('div #test .ui-modal');
array = document.querySelectorAll('div');
This covers the basics of DOM manipulation. Remember, element addition to the body or a body-contained node is required for the newly created node to be visible within the document.
$('.container-element').add('<div>Insert Div Content</div>');
.container-element is a JQuery selector that marks the element with the class "container-element" (presumably the parent element in which you want to insert your divs). Then the
add() function inserts HTML into the container-element.
