Standards information

Remarks

Used in Roles
No role required.

 

One or more id properties may be specified. A list of id properties is returned by Microsoft UI Automation.

In addition to providing the ariaLabelledby property, you should also use a label element to indicate a label for previous versions of the browser.

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).

If more than one id is specified, only the first id is recognized by Windows Internet Explorer 8.

Note  Recursive use of ariaLabelledby is not supported. An element that is using ariaLabelledby should not reference another element that is also using ariaLabelledby.
