How do you hide a DOM element using plain JavaScript?

Every element exposes a style property which you can use to alter the CSS styling properties.

You can set the display property to ‘none’ (like you would do in CSS, display: none;):

element.style.display = 'none'

To display it again, set it back to block or inline:

element.style.display = 'block'
