How to check whether a Button is clicked by using JavaScript

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

JavaScript:

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

HTML:

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

Answer

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.

Answer

This will do it

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

<script>
function myFunction(){
    alert("You button was pressed");
};   
</script>
Answer

Just hook up the onclick event:

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

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

Answer
if(button.clicked==true){
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(){ 
console.log("clicked");
}; // This Code Works Fine // 
Answer

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
}



document.getElementById('button').addEventListener("click",functionName);

You can check the detail differences between onclick() and addEventListener() in this answer here.
