How To: Add unique ID to div

I am creating my first simple web part that will modify a div. I want to find the div by giving it a unique ID. As it is possible for a user to put more than one of my web part on a single page, how do I make the div's ID unique to each web part instance?

 

I am creating the web part using the SharePoint Framework using the tutorials found at:

Hi @smithme 

sure you can create and assign a Guid 

var guid: Guid = Guid.newGuid();

importing

import { Guid } from '@microsoft/sp-client-base';

Cheers,

Federico

I failed to mention that I am using the SharePoint Framework with Visual Studio Code. I modified the original post to try and clarify my question.

Thanks for your help.

 

Side note:
I didn't need the import line as the Yeoman scaffolding already included it for me (something I never noticed before) with this line of code:

 

import { Version, Guid } from '@microsoft/sp-core-library';
