Parameters

{Object} objStyles
An object representing the CSS rules to be inserted into the document. Property names will be used as media queries if they start with "@media ". Property names will be used as rule selectors if the value is an object. If a property name is to be used as a selector, if any selectors don't contain &, "& " will be prepended to it. For all selectors, & will be replaced recursively with the selectors found in the parent. CSS property names will be uncamelcased by inserting dashes before each uppercased character and lower casing all characters. If a value is null or undefined, it will be turned into "none". If a value is a number other than 0, "px" will be appended to it. If a value is an array all of the items will be concatenated together, using "," to delimit the values. If a value ends with ! it will be replaced with "!important".
{HTMLElement|Array.|string} opt_ancestors
This can be an element or an array of elements which will get another class added to target all rules to it and its children. This can alternatively be a CSS path (selector) specifying the root on which all CSS rules created should be based.

Returns

{HTMLStyleSheet}
The stylesheet that is created and appended to the document is returned.

Required Functions

This function requires the following functions which are included automatically:

  • has()
    Every object descended from Object inherits the hasOwnProperty method. This method can be used to determine whether an object has the specified property as a direct property of that object; unlike the in operator, this method does not check down the object's prototype chain.
  • typeOf()
    Either gets the type of a value or adds a constructor registering its custom type name.
