HTML Question

Store the nth class name from a HTML tag in JavaScript

I have dynamically generated

that receives two generated classes applied to it. For example, I have :

<div class="container">...</div>

Then after I mess with it using some Javascript, it becomes:

<div class="container post post-hello-world">...</div>

For this example how can I grab the third class (
) and store it somewhere to be used for something else in my Javascript code using pure Javascript?


Use classList and item if the class you want is always third:

var className = document.getElementsByClassName('container')[0].classList.item(2);



Try before buy
