Modifying the Existing DOM Elements

Explore different jQuery methods for modifying existing DOM elements.

jQuery provides us with several useful methods to manipulate and alter DOM elements. These methods overwrite and update the objects on which they are called, making the process more intuitive and direct.

The manipulation methods allow us to perform many tasks on different elements, such as:

  • Adding or removing classes
  • Changing style properties
  • Changing text, HTML, and input values
  • Changing attribute values

We will go through some important manipulation methods below. You can find the complete documentation of all jQuery manipulation methods here.
