HTML | DOM Form acceptCharset Property

The DOM Form acceptCharset Property is used to set or return the value of the accept-charset attribute in the form Element. The accept-charset attribute is used to define the character encoding and is used for form submission. The default value of the accept-charset attribute is “UNKNOWN” string which indicates the encoding equals to the encoding of the document containing the

element.

  • It is used to return the acceptCharset property.
    formObject.acceptCharset
  • It is used to set the acceptCharset property.
    formObject.acceptCharset = character-set
  • Property Values:
