Add click event to DOM elements returned from querySelectorAll

How to iterate a NodeList and attach an event listener to each element

⭐️ 👀 2023 WEB DEVELOPMENT BOOTCAMP starting in days! Join the waiting list to reserve your spot in my 10-weeks cohort course and learn the fundamentals, HTML, CSS, JS, Tailwind, React, Next.js and much much more! 👀 ⭐️

You can add an event listener to all the elements returned by a document.querySelectorAll() call by iterating over those results using the for..of loop:

const buttons = document.querySelectorAll("#select .button")
for (const button of buttons) {
  button.addEventListener('click', function(event) {
    //...
  })
}

It’s important to note that document.querySelectorAll() does not return an array, but a NodeList object.

You can iterate it with forEach or for..of, or you can transform it to an array with Array.from() if you want.

One more thing! ⚠️ ✋

At the end of January I will organize the Web Development Bootcamp.

It's a 10-weeks long cohort online course where I will guide you to becoming a Web Developer.

It's not "just a course". It's a big event I organize once a year.

We'll start from zero, learn the fundamentals of Web Development, HTML CSS, JavaScript, Tailwind, Git, using the command line, VS Code, GitHub, Node.js, we'll then learn React, JSX, how to use PostgreSQL, Astro, Next.js, Prisma, deploying on Netlify/DigitalOcean/Fly/Vercel and much more! 

At the end of the first 10 weeks you'll know how to create web sites and web applications and I'll unlock you the 2nd phase of the Bootcamp: you will get access to a large number of projects exclusive to the Bootcamp graduates, so you can follow my instructions to build things like private areas with authentication, clones of popular sites like Twitter YouTube Reddit, create e-commerce sites, and much much more.

Because once you got the fundamentals, you only learn by working on real, exciting projects.
