JavaScript DOM Tutorial #9 – Events

Code Canyon

Hey gang, in this JavaScript DOM tutorial I’ll explain how we can attach event listeners to elements on a page, which can react to DOM events such as click, submit etc.

    Why use parentNode.removeChild() instead of simply using li.remove()?

    Great tutorial! Aside note may help someone that
    Instead of writing this to remove the li
    const li = e.target.parentElement;

    we can explicitly use the remove method on the li
    const li = e.target.parentElement.remove();

    Does the MouseEvent object gets created when we click on the thing that has event listener or does that object already exists?

    It would be really great if you would use named functions, its somewhat hard to catch up when you use anonymous functions

    thanks a lot man. But why you prefer use e(event) keyword instead use this keyword? Like this
    const btns = document.querySelectorAll('#book-list .delete');

    btns.forEach(btn => {
    btn.addEventListener('click', function () {
    // get current li
    const li = this.parentNode;
    // delete current li

    What font do you use in your text editor? It's very readable and I like it.

    'use strict'
    //STEP : 1
    //so our task is to fire an click event on all buttons so that when the button is clicked the whole li is deleted
    //first thing below is to get all the li elements
    //below i have gotten and put all my buttons under deleteBtn variable
    let deleteBtn = document.querySelectorAll('#book-list .delete'); //buttons gotten
    //STEP : 2
    //From the group of buttons elements we got, we can now apply or fire the event to a single button element or button
    // so below we convert the nodelist or html collection into an array and sork on a single button
    //STEP : 3
    //for every single button we click let us apply an event to that particularly clicked button
    button.addEventListener('click', function(e){
    //get the event to work on the item that was selected in our case li
    //once the button is clicked then we want all the entire li element to be the target of the event
    //STEP : 4
    const li = e.target.parentElement;
    //STEP : 5
    //below we call the action that we want the event to perform on the single element
    //now call the parent of the button and remove the particular childelement selected in our case the entire li

    Every time I try to create a group of elements I find the parentNode after the console tell me the correct parent node, I ask for the childNodes and it returns "text" but thats not even the worst part. When ever I check to see what the length of the child nodes are it tells me 1 even though I've grouped everything into a header or a div, I get the answer that the length is just one. Can you help me understand please ? Thank You

    You have no idea how helpful these videos have been for me to really understand the DOM. I was so confused from my readings and this clarified beautifully. Thank you so much!

    Fixes like so:

    const li = tgt.target;

    you may omit console.log

    Code from video ('#book-list.delete') differs from code available on your github repo ('#book-list ul li'). Code from github is correct, code from video doesn't work so I have no idea how it worked for you.

    Great tutorial. One problem is that if a button has a span or it generally has other elements then e.target might be not what we would want. I much prefer to use "this" since it always refers to the clicked element.

    Great, I've tried to set up removing element 'li' in my project according this video. IT works, but in console occurs bug "Cannot read property 'removeChild' of null" . Does anybody knows how to fix it ?
