HTMLObjectElement

The HTMLObjectElement interface provides special properties and methods (beyond those on the HTMLElement interface it also has available to it by inheritance) for manipulating the layout and presentation of <object> element, representing external resources.

Properties

Inherits properties from its parent, HTMLElement.

HTMLObjectElement.align
Is a DOMString representing an enumerated property indicating alignment of the element's contents with respect to the surrounding context. The possible values are "left", "right", "justify", and "center".
HTMLObjectElement.archive
Is a DOMString that reflects the archive HTML attribute, containing a list of archives for resources for this object.
HTMLObjectElement.border
Is a DOMString that reflects the border HTML attribute, specifying the width of a border around the object.
HTMLObjectElement.code
Is a DOMString representing the name of an applet class file, containing either the applet's subclass, or the path to get to the class, including the class file itself.
HTMLObjectElement.codeBase
Is a DOMString that reflects the codebase HTML attribute, specifying the base path to use to resolve relative URIs.
HTMLObjectElement.codeType
Is a DOMString that reflects the codetype HTML attribute, specifying the content type of the data.
HTMLObjectElement.contentDocument Read only
Returns a Document representing the active document of the object element's nested browsing context, if any; otherwise null.
HTMLObjectElement.contentWindow Read only
Returns a WindowProxy representing the window proxy of the object element's nested browsing context, if any; otherwise null.
HTMLObjectElement.data
Returns a DOMString that reflects the data HTML attribute, specifying the address of a resource's data.
HTMLObjectElement.declare
Is a boolean value that reflects the declare HTML attribute, indicating that this is a declaration, not an instantiation, of the object.
HTMLObjectElement.form Read only
Returns a HTMLFormElement representing the object element's form owner, or null if there isn't one.
HTMLObjectElement.height
Returns a DOMString that reflects the height HTML attribute, specifying the displayed height of the resource in CSS pixels.
HTMLObjectElement.hspace
Is a long representing the horizontal space in pixels around the control.
HTMLObjectElement.name
Returns a DOMString that reflects the name HTML attribute, specifying the name of the browsing context.
HTMLObjectElement.standby
Is a DOMString that reflects the standby HTML attribute, specifying a message to display while the object loads.
HTMLObjectElement.type
Is a DOMString that reflects the type HTML attribute, specifying the MIME type of the resource.
HTMLObjectElement.useMap
Is a DOMString that reflects the usemap HTML attribute, specifying a <map> element to use.
HTMLObjectElement.validationMessage Read only
Returns a DOMString representing a localized message that describes the validation constraints that the control does not satisfy (if any). This is the empty string if the control is not a candidate for constraint validation (willValidate is false), or it satisfies its constraints.
HTMLObjectElement.validity Read only
Returns a ValidityState with the validity states that this element is in.
HTMLObjectElement.vspace
Is a long representing the horizontal space in pixels around the control.
HTMLObjectElement.width
Is a DOMString that reflects the width HTML attribute, specifying the displayed width of the resource in CSS pixels.
HTMLObjectElement.willValidate Read only
Returns a boolean value that indicates whether the element is a candidate for constraint validation. Always false for HTMLObjectElement objects.

Methods

Inherits methods from its parent, HTMLElement.

HTMLObjectElement.checkValidity()
Returns a boolean value that always is true, because object objects are never candidates for constraint validation.
HTMLObjectElement.setCustomValidity()
Sets a custom validity message for the element. If this message is not the empty string, then the element is suffering from a custom validity error, and does not validate.
