Standards information

Remarks

Used in Roles
No role required.

 

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

The IHTMLElement5::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 IHTMLElement::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).
