    The HTMLElement.contentEditable property is used to indicate whether or not the element is editable. This enumerated attribute can have the following values:

    • true, or the empty string, indicates that the element is editable.
    • false indicates that the element cannot be edited.
    • inherit indicates that the element inherits its parent's editable status.


    editable = element.contentEditable
    element.contentEditable = "true"


    You can use the HTMLElement.isContentEditable property to test the computed Boolean value of this property.
