    HTMLFieldSetElement

     

    The HTMLFieldSetElement interface has special properties and methods (beyond the regular HTMLelement interface it also has available to it by inheritance) for manipulating the layout and presentation of field-set elements.

    Properties

    Inherits properties from its parent, HTMLElement.

    Name Type Description
    disabled Boolean Reflects the disabled HTML attribute, indicating whether the user can interact with the control.
    elements Read only HTMLFormControlsCollection The elements belonging to this field set.
    form Read only HTMLFormElement The containing form element, if this element is in a form.
    If the button is not a descendant of a form element, then the attribute can be the ID of any form element in the same document it is related to, or the null value if none matches.
    name DOMString Reflects the name HTML attribute, containing the name of the field set, used for submitting the form.
    type Read only DOMString Must be the string fieldset.
    validationMessage Read only DOMString A localized message that describes the validation constraints that the element does not satisfy (if any). This is the empty string if the element is not a candidate for constraint validation (willValidate is false), or it satisfies its constraints.
