Is there anyway to target all of <th> in a table and declare same attribute for all of them?

i have this table with crazy amount of data,i was wondering isn’t there any way to access all <th>elements and set an attribute which will be apllied to all of them?
for instance-

    <th colspan="7"> title </th>

i just wanna declare them in the beginning so that i don’t have to set each one of them, when i have a massive amount of data! :S

Yes this is very elementary to do via JavaScript: Element.setAttribute() - Web APIs | MDN

It’d be better if you assigned a class, but as long as you don’t have any other “th” elements to get in the way, you could target them on their own too.

you can use queySelecorAll() to select all the th, you get an html collection (array-like data structure) over which you can loop, and add the attribute to each element

Are you trying to do this with JavaScript or with CSS?

In either case, it is possible.

i was wondering if i could do it in HTML level. Guess,this is beyond HTML’s scope.Poor HTML. lol
