HTMLLIElement

The HTMLLIElement interface exposes specific properties and methods (beyond those defined by regular HTMLElement interface it also has available to it by inheritance) for manipulating list elements.

Properties

Inherits properties from its parent, HTMLElement.

HTMLLIElement.type This deprecated API should no longer be used, but will probably still work.
Is a DOMString representing the type of the bullets, "disc", "square" or "circle". As the standard way of defining the list type is via the CSS list-style-type property, use the CSSOM methods to set it via a script.
HTMLLIElement.value
Is a long indicating the ordinal position of the list element inside a given <ol>. It reflects the value attribute of the HTML <li> element, and can be smaller than 0. If the <li> element is not a child of an <ol> element, the property has no meaning.

Methods

No specific method; inherits properties from its parent, HTMLElement.
