Document.images

The images read-only property of the Document interface returns a collection of the images in the current HTML document.

Syntax

var imageCollection = document.images;

Value

An HTMLCollection providing a live list of all of the images contained in the current document. Each entry in the collection is an HTMLImageElement representing a single image element.

Usage notes

You can use either JavaScript array notation or the item() method on the returned collection to access the items in the collection. The following are equivalent:

firstImage = imageCollection.item(0);

firstImage = imageCollection[0];

Example

This example looks through the list of images and finds one whose name is "banner.gif".

var ilist = document.images;

for(var i = 0; i < ilist.length; i++) {
    if(ilist[i].src == 'banner.gif') {
        // found the banner
    }
}
