Interface HTMLCollection

  • public interface HTMLCollection
    An HTMLCollection is a list of nodes. An individual node may be accessed by either ordinal index or the node'sname or id attributes. Note: Collections in the HTML DOM are assumed to be live meaning that they are automatically updated when the underlying document is changed.

    See also the Document Object Model (DOM) Level 2 Specification.
