StyleSheet.ownerNode

The ownerNode property of the StyleSheet interface returns the node that associates this style sheet with the document.

This is usually an HTML <link> or <style> element, but can also return a processing instruction node in the case of <?xml-stylesheet ?>.

Syntax

nodeRef = stylesheet.ownerNode

Example

<html lang="en">
 <head>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="example.css">
 </head>
 <body>
   <button onclick="alert(document.styleSheets[0].ownerNode)">Show example.css’s ownerNode</button>
 </body>
</html>
// Displays "object HTMLLinkElement"

Notes

For style sheets that are included by other style sheets, such as with @import, the value of this property is null.
