HTMLUListElement

The HTMLUListElement interface provides special properties (beyond those defined on the regular HTMLElement interface it also has available to it by inheritance) for manipulating unordered list elements.

Properties

Inherits properties from its parent, HTMLElement.

HTMLUListElement.type
Is a DOMString value reflecting the type and defining the kind of marker to be used to display. The values are browser dependent and have never been standardized.
HTMLUListElement.compact
Is a Boolean indicating that spacing between list items should be reduced. This property reflects the compact attribute only, it doesn't consider the line-height CSS property used for that behavior in modern pages.

Methods

No specific method; inherits methods from its parent, HTMLElement.
