Examples

The following code example gets a TABLE called dataTable and uses the unexposed moveRow method to move a row from the end of the table to the beginning.

private void ShiftRows(String tableName)
{
	if (webBrowser1.Document != null)
	{
		HtmlDocument doc = webBrowser1.Document;
		HtmlElementCollection elems = doc.All.GetElementsByName(tableName);
		if (elems != null && elems.Count > 0)
		{
			HtmlElement elem = elems[0];

			// Prepare the arguments.
			Object[] args = new Object[2];
			args[0] = (Object)"-1";
			args[1] = (Object)"0";

			elem.InvokeMember("moveRow", args);
		}
	}
}
Private Sub ShiftRows(ByVal TableName As String)
    If (WebBrowser1.Document IsNot Nothing) Then
        With WebBrowser1.Document
            Dim Elems As HtmlElementCollection = .All.GetElementsByName(TableName)
            If (Not Elems Is Nothing And Elems.Count > 0) Then
                Dim Elem As HtmlElement = Elems(0)

                ' Prepare the arguments.
                Dim Args(2) As Object
                Args(0) = CObj("-1")
                Args(1) = CObj("0")

                Elem.InvokeMember("moveRow", Args)
            End If
        End With
    End If
End Sub
