    Range.collapse()

    The Range.collapse() method collapses the Range to one of its boundary points.

    A collapsed Range is empty, containing no content, specifying a single-point in a DOM tree. To determine if a Range is already collapsed, see the Range.collapsed property.

    Syntax

    range.collapse(toStart);
    

    Parameters

    toStart Optional
    A boolean value: true collapses the Range to its start, false to its end. If omitted, it defaults to false .

    Example

    var range = document.createRange();
    
    referenceNode = document.getElementsByTagName("div").item(0);
    range.selectNode(referenceNode);
    range.collapse(true);
