CSSCounterStyleRule: symbols property

The symbols property of the CSSCounterStyleRule interface gets and sets the value of the symbols descriptor. If the descriptor does not have a value set, this attribute returns an empty string.


A string


The following example shows a @counter-style rule. In JavaScript, myRules[0] is this @counter-style rule, returning symbols gives us the value "◰ ◳ ◲ ◱".

@counter-style box-corner {
  system: fixed;
  symbols: ◰ ◳ ◲ ◱;
  suffix: ": ";
  negative: "-";
let myRules = document.styleSheets[0].cssRules;
console.log(myRules[0].symbols); // "◰ ◳ ◲ ◱"
