HTMLTableElement.cellSpacing

Obsolete
This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

While you should instead use the CSS border-spacing property, the obsolete HTMLTableElement interface's cellSpacing property represents the spacing around the individual <th> and <td> elements representing a table's cells. Any two cells are separated by the sum of the cellSpacing of each of the two cells.

Syntax

HTMLTableElement.cellSpacing = spacing;
var spacing = HTMLTableElement.cellSpacing;

Value

A DOMString which is either a number of pixels (such as "10") or a percentage value (like "10%").

Example

This example sets cell spacing for a given table to 10 pixels.

var t = document.getElementById('TableA');
t.cellSpacing = "10";
