tBodies property

Retrieves a collection of all tBody objects in the table. Objects in this collection are in source order.

Document Object Model (DOM) Level 2 HTML Specification, Section 1.6.5




p = object.tBodies


Property values

Type: IHTMLElementCollection

Array of tBody objects.

Standards information


This collection can be indexed by name (ID). If duplicate names are found, a collection of those named items is returned. Collections of duplicate names must be referenced subsequently by ordinal position.


This example shows how to put text in the first cell in the first row of the first tBody object in the table. For each table, an initial tBody object is synthesized in the HTML tree even if a tBody element does not exist in the HTML source.

document.all.oTable.tBodies[0].rows[0].cells[0].innerText = 
   "Text for the first table cell";
