The Range.setEnd() method sets the end position of a Range.

If the endNode is a Node of type Text, Comment, or CDATASection, then endOffset is the number of characters from the start of endNode. For other Node types, endOffset is the number of child nodes between the start of the endNode.

Setting the end point above (higher in the document) than the start point will result in a collapsed range with the start and end points both set to the specified end position.

Syntax

range.setEnd(endNode, endOffset);

Parameters

endNode
The Node where the Range should end.
endOffset
An integer greater than or equal to zero representing the offset for the end of the Range from the start of endNode.

Example

var range = document.createRange();
var endNode = document.getElementsByTagName("p").item(3);
var endOffset = endNode.childNodes.length;
range.setEnd(endNode, endOffset);
