Element.ariaOrientation

The ariaOrientation property of the Element interface reflects the value of the aria-orientation attribute, which indicates whether the element's orientation is horizontal, vertical, or unknown/ambiguous.

Syntax

var ariaOrientation = element.ariaOrientation;
element.ariaOrientation = ariaOrientation

Value

A DOMString with one of the following values:

"horizontal"

The element is horizontal.

"vertical"

Examples

In this example the aria-orientation attribute on the element with an ID of handle_zoomSlider is set to "vertical". Using ariaOrientation we update the value to "horizontal".

<div id="handle_zoomSlider"
  role="slider"
  aria-orientation="vertical"
  aria-valuemin="0"
  aria-valuemax="17"
  aria-valuenow="14"
  tabindex="0">
<span>11</span>
</div>
let el = document.getElementById('handle_zoomSlider');
console.log(el.ariaOrientation); // "vertical"
el.ariaOrientation = "horizontal"
console.log(el.ariaOrientation); // "horizontal"
