CSSStyleSheet.removeRule()

Obsolete

This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

The obsolete CSSStyleSheet method removeRule() removes a rule from the stylesheet object. It is functionally identical to the standard, preferred method deleteRule().

Note: This is a legacy method which has been replaced by the standard method deleteRule(). You should use that instead.

Syntax

cssStyleSheet.removeRule(index)

Parameters

index
The index into the stylesheet's CSSRuleList indicating the rule to be removed.

Return value

undefined

Example

This example removes the first rule from the stylesheet myStyles.

 myStyles.removeRule(0);

You can rewrite this to use the standard deleteRule() method very easily:

myStyles.deleteRule(0);
