How to visually separate items into different sections on a web page

This is a snippet of code written in HTML, JavaScript, and CSS – it defines a custom web component called “SeparatorElement” using the Web Components API. This component represents a horizontal separator that can be used to visually separate content on a web page such as WordPress website or WooCommerce store.

If you have a long list of items on a web page and you want to visually separate them into different sections, you could use the SeparatorElement to add a horizontal line between the sections. Other examples include creating custom buttons, menus, and forms.

Overall, the Web Components API provides a powerful way to create reusable and modular components for web pages, and this code snippet demonstrates how to create a simple custom element using this API.




Content above the separator

Content below the separator

The "class" keyword in JavaScript is used to define a new class, in this case, "SeparatorElement." The class extends the "HTMLElement" class, which means that "SeparatorElement" is a custom element that can be used in HTML documents. The constructor method is called when an instance of the class is created, but in this case, it doesn't do anything.

The "connectedCallback" method is called when the custom element is inserted into the DOM (i.e., the web page). This method sets the display style of the element to "block" (which means it takes up the full width available) and adds a 1-pixel solid black border to the top of the element.

The "customElements.define" method registers the custom element with the browser so that it can be used in HTML documents. The first argument to this method is the name of the custom element (in this case, "separator-element"), and the second argument is the class that defines the element.
