NAME ^

HTML::DOM::Element::A - A Perl class for representing 'a' elements in an HTML DOM tree

SYNOPSIS ^

  use HTML::DOM;
  $doc = HTML::DOM->new;
  $elem = $doc->createElement('a');

  $elem->href('about:blank'); # set attribute
  $elem->target;              # get attribute
  $elem->tagName;
  # etc

  $elem->focus();
  $elem->blur();

DESCRIPTION ^

This class implements 'a' elements in HTML::DOM trees. It implements the HTMLAnchorElement DOM interface and inherits from HTML::DOM::Element (q.v.).

METHODS ^

In addition to those inherited from HTML::DOM::Element and its superclasses, this class implements the following DOM methods:

accessKey
charset
coords
href
hreflang
name
rel
rev
shape
tabIndex
target
type

Each of these returns the corresponding HTML attribute. If you pass an argument, it will become the new value of the attribute, and the old value will be returned.

blur
focus

Each of these triggers the corresponding event.

And HTML::DOM::Node's trigger_event method is overridden to call the default event handler for links when the DOMActivate event occurs.
