The DOM DList Object is used to represent the HTML <dl> tag. The Dlist element is accessed by getElementById().
 

Syntax:  

document.getElementById("ID");<

Where “id” is the ID assigned to the “dl” tag.
Example-1: 

html




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<head>
    <title>HTML DOM DList Object</title>
    <style>
        h1,
        h2 {
            text-align: center;
        }
         
        h1 {
            color: green;
        }
         
        dl {
            margin-left: 20%;
        }
         
        button {
            margin-left: 30%;
        }
    </style>
</head>
 
<body>
    <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
    <h2>DOM DList Object</h2>
   
    <!-- Assigning id to 'dl' tag -->
    <dl id="GFG">
        <dt>GeeksforGeeks</dt>
        <dd>A Computer Science Portal For Geeks</dd>
    </dl>
   
    <button onclick="myGeeks()">Submit</button>
    <p id="sudo"></p>
