How to make a button click by itself

Hi there!

I am doing the Simons game, and I would like to know how can I make a button click itself using a function?

After this function is done I want to use it into another function to make buttons be clicked randomly.

I already have all the buttons effects in which on a click it plays the song and changes its colours declared in a variable such as `` var blueButtonEffect = code here;```.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for. or Jquery .click()


Thank You, it works!!

Just to clarify for those who may have the same issue. You don’t really need a function to make a button click itself. As @lasjorg mentioned above you just need the .click() method. Using plain JS it would looks like this document.getElementById('#example').click(); or using jQuery $('example).click().

However, if you need to use a function to make a button to click by itself randomly I did like this.

var blueButtonEffect = code effect here;

var redButtonEffect = code effect here;

var greenButtonEffect = code effect here;

var  yellowButtonEffect= code effect here;

 var arr = [blueButtonEffect, redButtonEffect, greenButtonEffect, yellowButtonEffect];
 //will click on buttons randomly
 function clickByItself(){
   let random = Math.floor(Math.random()*arr.length)

like this, every time I reload the page a different button is clicked using the Math.floor(Math.random()*var.lenght) method.

Of course, there are very easy and smart ways to do that but as a beginner like me it works.

Now I just need to understand how to loop this effect :pray:
