Go to Exercise page


HTML Code :

<!DOCTYPE html><!-- HTML5 document type declaration -->
<html><!-- Start of HTML document -->
<head><!-- Start of head section -->
<meta charset="utf-8"><!-- Declares document character encoding -->
<title>How to define a clickable button.</title><!-- Sets the title of the webpage -->
</head><!-- End of head section -->
<body><!-- Start of body section -->
<button type="button" onclick="console.log('Welcome Friends')">Click Me!</button><!-- Button element with onclick event handler to log a message to the console when clicked -->
</body><!-- End of body section -->
</html><!-- End of HTML document -->


  • This HTML document starts with a doctype declaration indicating it's an HTML5 document.
  • Inside the <html> tags, the document structure begins.
  • The <head> section contains metadata about the document, such as character encoding and the title.
  • The <body> section is where the visible content of the webpage resides.
  • Within the body section, there's a <button> element created with the type attribute set to "button".
  • The onclick attribute of the button element specifies a JavaScript code snippet (console.log('Welcome Friends')) to be executed when the button is clicked.
  • When the button is clicked, the specified JavaScript code will log the message "Welcome Friends" to the browser console.
  • The button displays the text "Click Me!" as its label.
  • The HTML document ends with the closing </html> tag.
