ariaDescribedby property

[This documentation is preliminary and is subject to change.]

Sets or retrieves a list of elements that describe the current object.

Internet Explorer 8

Syntax

object.setAttribute("ariaDescribedby",value);var value = object.getAttribute("ariaDescribedby");

Property values

Type: BSTR

A space-separated list of id property values.

Remarks

This property defines element relationships and associations that cannot be readily determined from the document structure.

The ariaDescribedby property is intended to provide additional information which some users might need, and supplements the basic information provided by label.

If more than one id property is specified, all elements are combined together to create a single description.

Note  For cross-browser compatibility, always use the WAI-ARIA attribute syntax to access and modify ARIA properties, for example object.setAttribute("aria-valuenow", newValue).
