We will add an onclick event to our #click-me div that will run a function we will create. Our function will first use the value property along with the getElementById method to get the string the user has entered.

We will finally post the results using the textContent property.

function stringToLowercase(){
  
  //Get the user string
  var userString = document.getElementById("string1").value;
  
  //Convert the string to lowercase
  var lowercaseString = userString.toLowerCase();

  //Display the results
  document.getElementById("results").textContent = lowercaseString;
