Scalable Vector Graphics: Text, Section 10.17.1Internet Explorer 9


 retVal = object.getNumberOfChars();


This method has no parameters.

Standards information


The total number of characters includes referenced characters from tref reference, regardless of whether they are rendered.

The total number of characters is effectively equivalent to the length of the IHTMLDOMNode3::textContent attribute from the DOM Level 3 Core specification (section 1.4), if that attribute also expands tref elements.
