The Table createTFoot() method is used for creating an empty <tfoot> element and adding it to the table. It does not create a new <tfoot> element if a <tfoot> element already exists. In such a case, the createTFoot() method returns the existing one. 
The <tfoot> element must have multiple <tr> tags inside.


Return Value: It returns the newly created or an existing <tfoot> element.
