Description

Properties of the MetaDefinition object match the attributes of the HTML <meta> tag. These tags define document metadata that is important for things like configuring a Content Security Policy, defining browser compatibility and security settings, setting HTTP Headers, defining rich content for social sharing, and Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

To identify specific <meta> tags in a document, use an attribute selection string in the format "tag_attribute='value string'". For example, an attrSelector value of "name='description'" matches a tag whose name attribute has the value "description". Selectors are used with the querySelector() Document method, in the format meta[{attrSelector}].

Methods

Retrieves or creates a specific <meta> tag element in the current HTML document. In searching for an existing tag, Angular attempts to match the name or property attribute values in the provided tag definition, and verifies that all other attribute values are equal. If an existing element is found, it is returned and is not modified in any way.

addTag(tag: MetaDefinition, forceCreation: boolean = false): HTMLMetaElement | null

Parameters
tag MetaDefinition

The definition of a <meta> element to match or create.

forceCreation boolean

True to create a new element without checking whether one already exists.

Optional. Default is false.

Returns

HTMLMetaElement | null: The existing element with the same attributes and values if found, the new element if no match is found, or null if the tag parameter is not defined.
