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

The DOM dt object is used to represent the HTML <dt> element. The dt element can be accessed using the getElementById() method.

Syntax:

document.getElementById("id"); 

Where ‘id’ is the ID assigned to the dt tag.

Example-1:




<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html
<body
        <h1 style = "color:green;"
          GeeksForGeeks 
        </h1
  
        <h2>DOM DT Object</h2
  
        <dl>
            <dt id="id">Sorting</dt>
            <dd>Merge sort</dd>
        </dl>
          
        <button onclick="Geeks()">Click Here!</button>
          
        <p id="demo" style="color:green"></p>
          
        <script>
        function Geeks() {
            var doc = document.getElementById("id").innerHTML;
  
            document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = doc;
        }
        </script>
</body
</html


Output:
Before clicking on button:
dt
After clicking on button:
dt



Example-2: DT Object can be created by using the document.createElement method.




<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html
<body
        <h1 style = "color:green;"
          GeeksForGeeks 
        </h1
  
        <h2>DOM DT Object</h2
  
        <button onclick="Geeks()">Click Here!</button><br>
  
        <script>
        function Geeks() {
            var doc = document.createElement("DL");
            doc.setAttribute("id", "dl");
            document.body.appendChild(doc);
            
            // Creating a DT element
            var doc1 = document.createElement("DT");
            var txt1 = document.createTextNode("Sorting");
            doc1.appendChild(txt1);
            doc1.setAttribute("id", "dt");
            document.getElementById("dl").appendChild(doc1);
            
            // Creaiting a dd element
            var doc2 = document.createElement("DD");
            var txt2 = document.createTextNode("Merge sort");
            doc2.appendChild(txt2);
            document.getElementById("dl").appendChild(doc2);
        }
        </script>
</body
</html
