I am currently working on managing a particular web page in which I have a button and when the button is clicked, I want to replace a specific

element with the new content. How can I use the method called “replaceWith” in jQuery to achieve this particular target?

In the context of web development, you can use jQuery replace or “replaceWith” to replace the particular element of with the new content when the button is clicked. You should follow these particular steps which are given below:-

Firstly, try to attach an event handler to the particular button

$(‘#yourButtonId’).on(‘click’, function() {
Now use the “replaceWith” query for replacing the target with the new content:
$(‘#yourDivId’).replaceWith(‘New Content Goes Here’);
Now close the event handler
“ }); “

Here is the complete example given:-

  name=”viewport” content=”width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0”>
  ReplaceWith Example
  [removed][removed]Original Content
    $(document).ready(function() {
      $(‘#replaceButton’).on(‘click’, function() {
        $(‘#contentToReplace’).replaceWith(‘New Content Goes Here’);

You can adjust the IDs and the content according to your HTML structure and the content that you want to be replaced.
