Topic: HTML / CSSPrev|Next

Answer: Use the HTML5 contenteditable Attribute

You can set the HTML5 contenteditable attribute with the value true (i.e. contentEditable="true") to make an element editable in HTML, such as <div> or <p> element.

Let's try out the following example to understand how it actually works:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>HTML5 Editable Elements</title>
</head>
<body>
    <h1 contentEditable="true">Your Name</h1>
    <div contentEditable="true">You Favorite Movie</div>
    <p contentEditable="true">Your Comment</p>
    <p><strong>Note:</strong> Click on the elements and type some text.</p>
</body>
</html>
