JavaScript JavaScript and the DOM (Retiring) Making Changes to the DOM Styling Elements

I know what "block" means in regards to CSS, but how did it cause the div to appear and disappear?

toggleList.addEventListener('click', () => { if () { listDiv.style.display = 'block'; } else { listDiv.style.display = 'none'; } });

This question was also asked by someone else, but they didn't get the answer for it either. Just curious.

Hi there! As you've pointed out, you know how CSS has different display styles like "inline", "block", etc. If you set the display style to "none" it means that literally. It has no display style which makes it disappear. It is not displayed at all. It's still in the DOM, but has been told not to display.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
