What is createCaption() Method in JavaScript?

The JavaScript createCaption() method is used to create a <caption> for a table.

Note: you can use the deleteCaption() method to remove a <caption> element from a table.

table.createCaption();

The method does not take an argument.

createCaption() Method Return Value

If the target <table> did not have a <caption> then calling this method will create a new one and return a reference to that element.

But if the target table has a <caption> already, then the return value of this method will be a reference to that caption instead. This means in such case, the method won’t create a new one.
