UListElement

extern class js.html.UListElementextends ElementAvailable in js

The HTML unordered list element (<ul>) represents an unordered list of items, namely a collection of items that do not have a numerical ordering, and their order in the list is meaningless. Typically, unordered-list items are displayed with a bullet, which can be of several forms, like a dot, a circle or a squared. The bullet style is not defined in the HTML description of the page, but in its associated CSS, using the list-style-type property.

There is no limitation to the depth and imbrication of lists defined with the <ol> and <ul> elements.

Usage note: The <ol> and <ul> both represent a list of items. They differ in the way that, with the <ol> element, the order is meaningful. As a rule of thumb to determine which one to use, try changing the order of the list items; if the meaning is changed, the <ol> element should be used, else the <ul> is adequate.


Documentation for this class was provided by MDN.
var compact : BoolThis Boolean attribute hints that the list should be rendered in a compact style. The interpretation of this attribute depends on the user agent and it doesn't work in all browsers.
Usage note: Do not use this attribute, as it has been deprecated: the <ol> element should be styled using CSS. To give a similar effect than the compact attribute, the CSS property line-height can be used with a value of 80%.
var type : StringUsed to set the bullet style for the list. The values defined under HTML3.2 and the transitional version of HTML 4.0/4.01 are:
  • circle,
  • disc,
  • and square.

A fourth bullet type has been defined in the WebTV interface, but not all browsers support it: triangle.

If not present and if no CSS list-style-type property does apply to the element, the user agent decide to use a kind of bullets depending on the nesting level of the list.

Usage note: Do not use this attribute, as it has been deprecated: use the CSS list-style-type property instead.
