The HTMLFormControlsCollection interface represents a collection of HTML form control elements, returned by the HTMLFormElement interface's elements property.

This interface replaces one method from HTMLCollection, on which it is based.

HTMLCollection HTMLFormControlsCollection

Instance properties

This interface inherits the properties of its parent, HTMLCollection.

Instance methods

This interface inherits the methods of its parent, HTMLCollection.


Returns the RadioNodeList or the Element in the collection whose name or id matches the specified name, or null if no nodes match. Note that this version of namedItem() hides the one inherited from HTMLCollection. Like that method, using the JavaScript array bracket syntax with a String, as in collection["value"], is equivalent to collection.namedItem("value").
