Interface HTMLTableElement

All Superinterfaces:
Element, Node, HTMLElement

public interface HTMLTableElement
extends HTMLElement

The create* and delete* methods on the table allow authors to construct and modify tables. [HTML 4.01] specifies that only one of each of the CAPTION, THEAD, and TFOOT elements may exist in a table. Therefore, if one exists, and the createTHead() or createTFoot() method is called, the method returns the existing THead or TFoot element. See the TABLE element definition in HTML 4.01.

See also the Document Object Model (DOM) Level 2 HTML Specification.

Since:
BlackBerry API 5.0.0
