HTML <label> style Attribute

The style attribute on a <label> tag assigns a unique style to the label. A style contains one or more CSS property/value pairs that define the appearance of the label.

Example

#

A style attribute on a <label> element.

 
<form>
  <label style="color: teal;font-weight: 500;"
         for="firstname" >First name</label> &nbsp;
  <input type="text" id="firstname" name="firstname">
</form>

Using style

The style attribute specifies the style, i.e. look and feel, of the <label> element.

A style contains any number of CSS property/value pairs, separated by semicolons (;).

The style attribute overrides any other style that was defined in a <style> tag or an external CSS file.

This inline styling affects the current <label> element only.

    let element = document.getElementById("mylabel");

    if (element.style.color === "teal") {
       element.style.color = "tomato";
    } else {
       element.style.color = "teal";
    }
  }
</script>

Code explanation

The style attribute assigns a text color to the <label> element.

Clicking the button calls JavaScript which toggles the text color to another color.
