anchor Method (Windows Scripting - JScript)

Places an HTML anchor with a NAME attribute around specified text in the object.



  • strVariable
    Required. Any String object or literal.

  • anchorString
    Required. Text you want to place in the NAME attribute of an HTML anchor.


Call the anchor method to create a named anchor out of a String object. The following example demonstrates how the anchor method accomplishes this:

var strVariable = "This is an anchor";
strVariable = strVariable.anchor("Anchor1");

The value of strVariable after the last statement is:

<A NAME="Anchor1">This is an anchor</A>

No checking is done to see if the tag has already been applied to the string.
