(example needed)


Type: one of the values below
If the label of the element is too big to fit in its given space, the text will be cropped on the side specified by the crop attribute. An ellipsis will be used in place of the cropped text. If the box direction is reversed, the cropping is reversed.
The text will be cropped on its left side in left-to-right text locales, and the right side in right-to-left locales.
The text will be cropped on its right side in left-to-right text locales, and the right side in right-to-left locales.
The text will be cropped on its left side.
The text will be cropped on its right side.
The text will be cropped in the middle, showing both the start and end of the text normally.
The text will be not be cropped using an ellipsis. However, the text will simply be cut off if it is too large. The side depends on the CSS text alignment.
Depending on the platform and theme being used, some elements will have set a maximum width so they will always appear cropped. If you wish to use the value none and the displayed text is larger than this maximum width, you may be able to use the max-width CSS property (or the maxwidth attribute) to override this size. For example, for a menuitem in a menu you can add the following CSS rule when you want to use the value none:
menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu { max-width: none; }
Type: boolean
Indicates whether the element is disabled or not. If this element is set to true the element is disabled. Disabled elements are usually drawn with grayed-out text. If the element is disabled, it does not respond to user actions, it cannot be focused, and the command event will not fire.
Visible controls have a disabled property which, except for menus and menuitems, is normally preferred to use of the attribute, as it may need to update additional state.
Type: URI
The URI of the image to appear on the element. If this attribute is empty or left out, no image appears. The position of the image is determined by the dir and orient attributes.
Type: string
The label that will appear on the element. If this is left out, no text appears. For an editable menuitem element the value of this attribute is copied to the menulist.value property upon user selection of the menuitem.


Type: string
This attribute is reserved for use by anonymous children of listitem; do not use.


Type: boolean
Gets and sets the value of the disabled attribute.

Style classes

Use this class to have an image appear on the listcell. Specify the image using the image attribute. Note that both an image and a label are added when this style is set. The label will take up extra space even when no label text is set. If it is desired to center the image, use CSS to hide the label.


If you need to right-align a cell's contents, you can do so like this:

cell = document.createElement("listcell");
cell.setAttribute("label", "This is the cell's label");
cell.setAttribute("style", "text-align:right");
listbox, listcol, listcols, listhead, listheader, listitem
