Using style

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

  let toggle = () => {
    let element = document.getElementById("myhr");

    if (element.style.backgroundColor === "teal") {
       element.style.backgroundColor = "#4238ca";
    } else {
       element.style.backgroundColor = "teal";
    }
  }
</script>

Code explanation

The style attribute assigns a background color to the <hr> element.

Repeatedly clicking the button calls JavaScript which changes the background to another color.
