Standards information

Remarks

Used in Roles No role required.

One or more IHTMLElement::id properties may be specified. A list of IHTMLElement::id properties is returned by Microsoft UI Automation.

In addition to providing the IHTMLElement5::ariaLabelledby property, you should also use a label element to indicate a label for previous versions of the browser.

Note For cross-browser compatibility, always use the WAI-ARIA attribute syntax to access and modify ARIA properties, for example object.setAttribute("aria-valuenow", newValue).

If more than one IHTMLElement::id is specified, only the first id is recognized by Windows Internet Explorer 8.

Note Recursive use of IHTMLElement5::ariaLabelledby is not supported. An element that is using IHTMLElement5::ariaLabelledby should not reference another element that is also using IHTMLElement5::ariaLabelledby.
