HTMLLegendElement

The HTMLLegendElement is an interface allowing to access properties of the <legend> elements. It inherits properties and methods from the HTMLElement interface.

Properties

HTMLLegendElement.form Read only
Is a HTMLFormElement representing the form that this legend belongs to. If the legend has a fieldset element as its parent, then this attribute returns the same value as the form attribute on the parent fieldset element. Otherwise, it returns null.
HTMLLegendElement.accessKey
Is a DOMString representing a single-character access key to give access to the element.
HTMLLegendElement.align This deprecated API should no longer be used, but will probably still work.
Is a DOMString representing the alignment relative to the form set

Methods
