HTMLLabelElement: control property

The read-only HTMLLabelElement.control property returns a reference to the control (in the form of an object of type HTMLElement or one of its derivatives) with which the <label> element is associated, or null if the label isn't associated with a control.


An HTMLElement derived object representing the control with which the <label> is associated, or null if the label stands alone.

Note: If this property has a value and HTMLLabelElement.htmlFor has a value, the HTMLLabelElement.htmlFor property must refer to the same control.
