Returns:
node name

tagName

Get the name of the tag for this element. E.g. div

Returns:
the tag name

tagName

public Element tagName(String tagName)
Change the tag of this element. For example, convert a <span> to a <div> with el.tagName("div");.

Parameters:
tagName - new tag name for this element
Returns:
this element, for chaining

tag

public Tag tag()
Get the Tag for this element.

Returns:
the tag object

isBlock

public boolean isBlock()
Test if this element is a block-level element. (E.g. <div> == true or an inline element <p> == false).

Returns:
true if block, false if not (and thus inline)

id

public String id()
Get the id attribute of this element.

Returns:
The id attribute, if present, or an empty string if not.

attr

public Element attr(String attributeKey,
                    String attributeValue)
Set an attribute value on this element. If this element already has an attribute with the key, its value is updated; otherwise, a new attribute is added.

Overrides:
attr in class Node
Parameters:
attributeKey - The attribute key.
attributeValue - The attribute value.
Returns:
this element

dataset

public Map<String,String> dataset()
Get this element's HTML5 custom data attributes. Each attribute in the element that has a key starting with "data-" is included the dataset.

E.g., the element <div data-package="jsoup" data-language="Java" class="group">... has the dataset package=jsoup, language=java.

This map is a filtered view of the element's attribute map. Changes to one map (add, remove, update) are reflected in the other map.

You can find elements that have data attributes using the [^data-] attribute key prefix selector.

Returns:
a map of key=value custom data attributes.

parent

public final Element parent()
Description copied from class: Node
Gets this node's parent node.

Overrides:

Returns:
this element's stack of parents, closest first.

child

public Element child(int index)

Note that an element can have both mixed Nodes and Elements as children. This method inspects a filtered list of children that are elements, and the index is based on that filtered list.

Parameters:
index - the index number of the element to retrieve
Returns:
the child element, if it exists, otherwise throws an IndexOutOfBoundsException
See Also:
Node.childNode(int)

children

public Elements children()

This is effectively a filter on Node.childNodes() to get Element nodes.

Returns:
child elements. If this element has no children, returns an empty list.
See Also:
Node.childNodes()

textNodes

public List<TextNode> textNodes()
Get this element's child text nodes. The list is unmodifiable but the text nodes may be manipulated.

This is effectively a filter on Node.childNodes() to get Text nodes.

Returns:
child text nodes. If this element has no text nodes, returns an empty list.

For example, with the input HTML: <p>One <span>Two</span> Three <br> Four</p> with the p element selected:
  • p.text() = "One Two Three Four"
  • p.ownText() = "One Three Four"
  • p.children() = Elements[<span>, <br>]
  • p.childNodes() = List<Node>["One ", <span>, " Three ", <br>, " Four"]
  • p.textNodes() = List<TextNode>["One ", " Three ", " Four"]

dataNodes

public List<DataNode> dataNodes()
Get this element's child data nodes. The list is unmodifiable but the data nodes may be manipulated.

This is effectively a filter on Node.childNodes() to get Data nodes.

Returns:
child data nodes. If this element has no data nodes, returns an empty list.
See Also:
data()

select

public Elements select(String cssQuery)

This method is generally more powerful to use than the DOM-type getElementBy* methods, because multiple filters can be combined, e.g.:

See the query syntax documentation in Selector.

Parameters:
cssQuery - a Selector CSS-like query
Returns:
elements that match the query (empty if none match)
See Also:
Selector
