PerformanceElementTiming.element

The element read-only property of the PerformanceElementTiming interface returns an Element which is a literal representation of the associated element.

Syntax

var element = PerformanceElementTiming.element;

Value

An Element.

Examples

In this example calling entry.element will log to the console
<img src="image.jpg" alt="a nice image" elementtiming="big-image">.

<img src="image.jpg" alt="a nice image" elementtiming="big-image">
const observer = new PerformanceObserver((list) => {
  let entries = list.getEntries().forEach(function (entry) {
    if (entry.identifier === "big-image") {
      console.log(entry.element);
    }
  });
});
observer.observe({ entryTypes: ["element"] });

This example uses the PerformanceObserver interface to create a list of performance measurement events. In our case we observe the PerformanceEntry.entrytype element in order to use the PerformanceElementTiming interface.
