Instructor: 00:01 Shadow DOM is used inside custom elements, so we will define one now. We'll start by adding a template with a div, add the class text to the div, and inside, add a slot named content. Let's add our script now, with a reference to the template.
00:24 The final custom element, we'll call it custom element. Inside its constructor, we use the elements attachShadow method, with mode open as a parameter in order to instantiate the shadow root.
00:40 This shadow root can be used now as an HTML element. We just append the template's content clone inside, we define the element, we use the element in the DOM, we add a slotted paragraph. We refresh, and we see the element is rendered. In order to see the Shadow DOM style encapsulation, let's add style to our template, and see the change.
01:09 Now, let's add a simple div with the same class. We'll refresh, and we see that it's loaded with no styling. Most apps have global style, so let's add that now. Just copy the template style. To make things interesting, let's make the global style more specific.
01:37 Let's change things to add color, underline, and bigger font, refresh, and we see that the div outside the shadow has the global style.
