What is Event Target in JavaScript?

In JavaScript, an event target is the specific element on a webpage that an event is triggered on. For example, if a user clicks on a button on a webpage, the event target would be the button element.

Here is an example of using event targets in JavaScript:

<code>// Select the button element on the page
var button = document.querySelector('button');

// Add a click event listener to the button
button.addEventListener('click', function(event) {
  // The event target is the button that was clicked

In this example, we are selecting the button element on the page and adding a click event listener to it. When the user clicks on the button, the event listener will be triggered and the event target will be the button element that was clicked.

This allows us to perform actions based on the specific element that was interacted with on the page.
