Examples

This example uses the removeBehavior method to show how a behavior that implements a mouseover highlighting effect can be dynamically removed from all li elements on a page.

Code example: http://samples.msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/samples/components/htc/refs/addBehavior.htm

<script type="text/javascript">
var collBehaviorID = new Array();
var collLI = new Array ();
var countLI = 0;
:
function detachBehavior()
{
     for (i=0; i < countLI; i++)
        collLI[i].removeBehavior (collBehaviorID [i]);
}

</script>
:
Click <a href="javascript:detachBehavior()">here</a>
to remove highlighting effect.
