Document: all property

Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes.

The Document interface's read-only all property returns an HTMLAllCollection rooted at the document node.

Rather than using document.all to return an HTMLAllCollection of all the document's elements in document order, you can use Document.querySelectorAll to return a NodeList of all the document's elements in document order:

const allElements = document.querySelectorAll("*");


An HTMLAllCollection which contains every element in the document.
