How to check whether a Button is clicked by using JavaScript

Is there a simple way to do something along these lines:


if(document.getElementById('button').clicked == true)
   alert("button was clicked");


<input id="button" type="submit" name="button" value="enter"/>



You can add a click event handler for this:

document.getElementById('button').onclick = function() {
   alert("button was clicked");

This will alert when it's clicked, if you want to track it for later, just set a variable to true in that function instead of alerting, or variable++ if you want to count the number of clicks, whatever your ultimate use is. You can see an example here.


This will do it

<input id="button" type="submit" name="button" onclick="myFunction();" value="enter"/>

function myFunction(){
    alert("You button was pressed");

Just hook up the onclick event:

<input id="button" type="submit" name="button" value="enter" onclick="myFunction();"/>

Try adding an event listener for clicks:

document.getElementById('button').addEventListener("click", function() {
   alert("You clicked me");

Using addEventListener is probably a better idea then setting onclick - onclick can easily be overwritten by another piece of code.

You can use a variable to remember if the button has been clicked before:

var clicked = false
document.getElementById('button').addEventListener("click", function() {
   clicked = true

addEventListener on MDN

console.log("Button Clicked);
} ==> // This Code Doesn't Work Properly So Please Use Below One // 

var button= document.querySelector("button"); // Accessing The Button // 
button.addEventListener("click", check); // Adding event to call function when clicked // 

function check(){ 
}; // This Code Works Fine // 

All the answers here discuss about onclick method, however you can also use addEventListener().

Syntax of addEventListener()

document.getElementById('button').addEventListener("click",{function defination});

The function defination above is known as anonymous function.

If you don't want to use anonymous functions you can also use function refrence.

function functionName(){
//function defination
