Property values

Type: Object

a zero-based array of attributes applied to the object.


The IHTMLDocument2::expando properties of an object are included in the IHTMLElement5::attributes collection of the object as of Microsoft Internet Explorer 6. To access the IHTMLDocument2::expando properties of an object in earlier versions of Windows Internet Explorer, use the Microsoft JScript construct.

The IHTMLDOMNode::attributes collection does not include the IHTMLDocument2::expando property. Compare to IHTMLDOMAttribute2::attributes.

The attributes collection does not expose the style object. Use the IHTMLStyle::cssText property of the object's style property to retrieve the persistent representation of the cascading styles associated with an object.

Unlike other Dynamic HTML (DHTML) collections, such as all and children, the attributes collection is static. Modifications to the properties of an object are not automatically reflected by an existing reference to the attributes collection of that object.
