The getElementsByClassName method won't accept a list

Recommended Posts

According to my research, all indications are that the getElementByClassName method can accept multiple arguments. for example:

var x = document.getElementsByClassName("class1 class2");

I haven't gotten this to work. I have been experimenting with it on CodePen. What am I missing?

That's not how getElementsByClassName works. Putting both class names there will only give you elements that have both of the values in their class attribute. If you want to search for elements that contain either one of the classes. then you have to call getElementsByClassName twice.
