HTMLAnchorElement.rel

The HTMLAnchorElement.rel property reflects the rel attribute. It is a DOMString containing a space-separated list of link types indicating the relationship between the resource represented by the <a> element and the current document.

Syntax

var relstr = anchorElt.rel;
anchorElt.rel = relstr;

Example

var anchors = document.getElementsByTagName("a");
var length = anchors.length;
for (var i = 0; i < length; i++) {
  alert(anchors[i]);
}
