HTML | DOM DList Object
  • Last Updated : 22 Jan, 2019

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:




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <title>dl tag</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>
    
    <!-- Assiging 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>
    <script>
        function myGeeks() {
            <!-- Accessing 'dl'. -->
            var g = document.getElementById("GFG").innerHTML;
            document.getElementById("sudo").innerHTML = g;
        }
    </script>
</body>
  
</html>
