StaticRange interface extends
AbstractRange to provide a method to specify a range of content in the DOM whose contents don't update to reflect changes which occur within the DOM tree.
This interface offers the same set of properties and methods as
StaticRange are not available from web workers.
Creates a new
StaticRangeobject given the
StaticRangeInitdictionary specifying the default values for its properties.
The properties below are inherited from its parent interface,
Returns a Boolean value which is
trueif the range's start and end positions are the same, resulting in a range of length 0.
Returns the DOM
Nodewhich contains the ending point of the range. The offset into the node at which the end position is located is indicated by
Returns an integer value indicating the offset into the node given by
endContainerat which the last character of the range is found.
Returns the DOM
Nodewhich contains the starting point of the range (which is in turn identified by
Returns an integer value indicating the offset into the node specified by
startContainerat which the first character of the range is located.
A DOM range specifies a span of content in a document, potentially beginning inside one node (or element) and ending inside another one. Unlike a
StaticRange represents a range which is fixed in time; it does not change to try to keep the same content within it as the document changes. If any changes are made to the DOM, the actual data contained within the range specified by a
StaticRange may change. This lets the user agent avoid a lot of work that is unnecessary if the web app or site doesn't need a live-updating range.
