The HTMLSelectElement.labels is a read only property that returns a NodeList containing the list of label elements associated with this select element.

Syntax

Edit

aSelectElement.label.selectname= alabel ; 

Example

HTML

The following example shows three form controls each with a label, two of which have small text showing the right format for users to use.

<p><label>Full name: <input name=fn> <small>Format: First Last</small></label></p>
<p><label>Age: <input name=age type=number min=0></label></p>
<p><label>Post code: <input name=pc> <small>Format: AB12 3CD</small></label></p>

Javascript

This JavaScript finds the label for a form element, which is helpful for dynamically highlighting or changing a label based on user input.

<script type="text/javascript">

function luster(inputElem){
if(inputElem.parentNode){
if(inputElem.parentNode.tagName=='label'){
return inputElem.parentNode;
}
}
var labels=document.getElementsByTagName("label"),i;
for( i=1; i<labels.length;i++ ){
if(labels[i].htmlFor==inputElem.id){
return labels[i];
}
}
return false;
}

</script>
