The HTMLCollection interface represents a generic collection (array-like object similar to arguments) of elements (in document order) and offers methods and properties for selecting from the list.

read onlylength:Int

Returns the number of items in the collection.


item (index:Int):Element

Returns the specific node at the given zero-based index into the list. Returns null if the index is out of range.

namedItem (name:String):Element

Returns the specific node whose ID or, as a fallback, name matches the string specified by name. Matching by name is only done as a last resort, only in HTML, and only if the referenced element supports the name attribute. Returns null if no node exists by the given name.
