item(index[, subindex]) item(index)


Returns a single td object or collection of td objects corresponding to the element matching the index value (or, optionally in IE, the index and subindex values).


When the parameter is a zero-based integer, the returned value is a single element corresponding to the specified item in source code order (nested within the current element); when the parameter is a string (IE only), the returned value is a collection of elements whose id properties match that string.


In IE only, if you specify a string value for the first parameter, you can use the second parameter to specify a zero-based index that retrieves the specified element from the collection whose id properties match the first parameter's string value.

Returned Value

One td object or collection (array) of td objects. If there are no matches to the parameters, the returned value is null.
