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. Syntax:
  • It is used to return the acceptCharset property.
    formObject.acceptCharset
  • It is used to set the acceptCharset property.
    formObject.acceptCharset = character-set
  • Property Values:
    • character-set : The attribute value contains the list separated value of one or more encoding attributes. The common value of encoding attributes are: UTF-8, ISO-8859-1. This attribute always associated with form element only.
    • Example-1: HTML Program that illustrate how to return the accept-charset Property.
