addReadRequest method

Obsolete. Adds an entry to the queue for read requests.


 retVal = object.addReadRequest(name, reserved);


  • name [in]
    Type: BSTR

    BSTR that specifies one of the standard IHTMLOpsProfile::getAttribute names. If anything else is used, the request is ignored and nothing is added to the read-requests queue.

  • reserved [in, optional]
    Type: VARIANT

    Internet Explorer currently ignores this parameter.

Standards information

There are no standards that apply here.


This method appends a vCard name to the read-requests queue. The read-requests queue is a list of read requests waiting to be initiated. To initiate the accumulated, or compound, read requests in the queue, call IHTMLOpsProfile::doReadRequest. To clear the queue, call IHTMLOpsProfile::clearRequest.

As of Windows Internet Explorer 7, this method is obsolete and should not be used.
