Document: applets property

Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

The applets property of the Document returns an empty HTMLCollection. This property is kept only for compatibility reasons; in older versions of browsers, it returned a list of the applets within a document.

Note: Support for the <applet> element has been removed by all browsers. Therefore, calling document.applets always returns an empty collection.


An empty HTMLCollection.
