This chapter provides a brief reference for the general methods, properties, and events available to most HTML and XML elements in the Gecko DOM.

Various W3C specifications apply to elements:

The articles listed here span the above and include links to the appropriate W3C DOM specification.

While these interfaces are generally shared by most HTML and XML elements, there are more specialized interfaces for particular objects listed in the DOM HTML Specification—for example the HTML Table Element and HTML Form Element interfaces.

Event Handlers

These are properties that correspond to the HTML 'on' event attributes.

Unlike the corresponding attributes, the values of these properties are functions (or any other object implementing the EventListener interface) rather than a string. In fact, assigning an event attribute in HTML creates a wrapper function around the specified code. For example, given the following HTML:

<div onclick="foo();">click me!</div>

If element is a reference to this div, the value of element.onclick is effectively:

function onclick(event) {
   foo();
}

Note how the event object is passed as parameter event to this wrapper function.

onblur
Returns the event handling code for the blur event.
onchange
Returns the event handling code for the change event.
onclick
Returns the event handling code for the click event.
ondblclick
Returns the event handling code for the dblclick event.
onfocus
Returns the event handling code for the focus event.
onkeydown
Returns the event handling code for the keydown event.
onkeypress
Returns the event handling code for the keypress event.
onkeyup
Returns the event handling code for the keyup event.
onmousedown
Returns the event handling code for the mousedown event.
onmousemove
Returns the event handling code for the mousemove event.
onmouseout
Returns the event handling code for the mouseout event.
onmouseover
Returns the event handling code for the mouseover event.
onmouseup
Returns the event handling code for the mouseup event.
onresize
Returns the event handling code for the resize event.
onscroll
Returns the event handling code for the scroll event.

<h3 name="Event_Handlers"> Event Handlers </h3>
<p>These are properties that correspond to the HTML 'on' event attributes.
</p><p>Unlike the corresponding attributes, the values of these properties are functions (or any other object implementing the <a class="external" href="http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-2-Events/events.html#Events-EventListener">EventListener</a> interface) rather than a string. In fact, assigning an event attribute in HTML creates a wrapper function around the specified code. For example, given the following HTML:
</p>
<pre>&lt;div onclick="foo();"&gt;click me!&lt;/div&gt;
</pre>
<p>If <code>element</code> is a reference to this <code>div</code>, the value of <code>element.onclick</code> is effectively:
</p>
<pre>function onclick(event) {
   foo();
}
</pre>
<p>Note how the <a href="pt/DOM/event">event</a> object is passed as parameter <code>event</code> to this wrapper function.
