Element.getAttribute()

요약

getAttribute() 은 해당 요소에 지정된 값을 반환 합니다. 만약 주어진 속성이 존재 하지 않는 다면, null 값이나 ""(빈문자열); 을 반환 할 것입니다. 자세한 사항은 Notes  참조 하십시오.

문법

var attribute = element.getAttribute(attributeName);
  • attributeattributeName의 값을 가지고 있는 문자열입니다.
  • attributeName은 값을 얻고자 하는 속성의 이름입니다.

예제

let div1 = document.getElementById("div1");
let align = div1.getAttribute("align");

alert(align); // id가 "div1"인 요소(element)의 align 값을 보여줍니다.

Notes

When called on an HTML element in a DOM flagged as an HTML document, getAttribute() lower-cases its argument before proceeding.

Essentially all web browsers (Firefox, Internet Explorer, recent versions of Opera, Safari, Konqueror, and iCab, as a non-exhaustive list) return null when the specified attribute does not exist on the specified element; this is what the current DOM specification draft specifies. The old DOM 3 Core specification, on the other hand, says that the correct return value in this case is actually the empty string, and some DOM implementations implement this behavior. The implementation of getAttribute() in XUL (Gecko) actually follows the DOM 3 Core specification and returns an empty string. Consequently, you should use element.hasAttribute() to check for an attribute's existence prior to calling getAttribute() if it is possible that the requested attribute does not exist on the specified element.
