How to change text dynamically using JavaScript

Welcome to another JavaScript tutorial! we can enhance our web pages by changing text dynamically. Let’s explore how JavaScript can bring a new level of interaction to our static content, making the user experience more engaging.


JavaScript enables us to update text on our web pages without needing to reload the entire page. This allows for instant changes, enhancing user engagement and adding dynamism to our websites.


Consider a scenario where we have a paragraph on our webpage that says “Hello, everyone!” When a button is clicked, we want to transform it into “Welcome to our website!”


<title>Changing Text with JavaScript</title>
    <p id="myParagraph">Hello, everyone!</p>
    <button onclick="changeText()">Change Text</button>

        function changeText() {
            var paragraph = document.getElementById("myParagraph");
            paragraph.textContent = "Welcome to our website!";


We begin with a paragraph element displaying the text “Hello, everyone!”

  • Below the paragraph, there’s a button labeled “Change Text”. Clicking this button triggers a JavaScript function named “changeText()”.
  • Inside the “changeText()” function, JavaScript locates the paragraph element using its ID and updates its text content to “Welcome to our website!” using the textContent property.


With JavaScript, we can web pages, more interactive and engaging. This is just one of the many ways JavaScript empowers us to create dynamic experiences. Let’s continue exploring its capabilities and utilize them in our web projects!
