ParentNode

The ParentNode interface contains methods that are particular to Node objects that can have children.

ParentNode is a raw interface and no object of this type can be created; it is implemented by Element, Document, and DocumentFragment objects.

Properties

ParentNode.children This is an experimental API that should not be used in production code. Somente leitura
Returns a live HTMLCollection containing all objects of type Element that are children of this ParentNode.
ParentNode.firstElementChild (en-US) This is an experimental API that should not be used in production code. Somente leitura
Returns the Element that is the first child of this ParentNode, or null if there is none.
ParentNode.lastElementChild (en-US) This is an experimental API that should not be used in production code. Somente leitura
Returns the Element that is the last child of this ParentNode, or null if there is none.
ParentNode.childElementCount This is an experimental API that should not be used in production code. Somente leitura
Returns an unsigned long giving the amount of children that the object has.

Methods

ParentNode.append() (en-US) This is an experimental API that should not be used in production code.
Inserts a set of Node objects or DOMString objects after the last child of the ParentNode. DOMString objects are inserted as equivalent Text (en-US) nodes.
ParentNode.prepend() (en-US) This is an experimental API that should not be used in production code.
Inserts a set of Node objects or DOMString objects before the first child of the ParentNode. DOMString objects are inserted as equivalent Text (en-US) nodes.

Specification

DOM
The definition of 'ParentNode.firstElementChild' in that specification.
Padrão em tempo real Splitted the ElementTraversal interface in ChildNode and ParentNode. The firstElementChild, lastElementChild, and childElementCount properties are now defined on the latter.
The Document and DocumentFragment implemented the new interfaces.
Added the children property.
