HTML | DOM DT Object
  • Last Updated : 30 Mar, 2021

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: 
 

html




<!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. 
 

html




<!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);
           
            // Creating a dd element
            var doc2 = document.createElement("DD");
            var txt2 = document.createTextNode("Merge sort");
            doc2.appendChild(txt2);
            document.getElementById("dl").appendChild(doc2);
        }
        </script>
</body>
