How to toggle text inside and element on click using jQuery

Topic: JavaScript / jQueryPrev|Next

Answer: Use the jQuery text() method

You can use the jQuery click() method in combination with the text() method to replace or toggle the text inside an element such as a link (i.e. an anchor <a>), <div> or <button> element dynamically using the jQuery. Let's try out an example to see how this works:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>jQuery Toggle Text inside Elements</title>
<style>
    button {
        padding: 5px 10px;
        font-size: 14px;
    }
</style>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.5.1.min.js"></script>
<script>
    $(document).ready(function(){
        $("button").click(function(){
            $(this).text($(this).text() == 'Order by Alphabet' ? 'Order by Category' : 'Order by Alphabet');
        });
    });
</script>
</head>
<body>
    <button type="button">Order by Alphabet</button>
<p><strong>Note:</strong> Click on the button to swap the text.</p>
</body>
</html>
