DOM API - The "document" Object
This section provides a quick description of the 'document' object of the DOM API. A tutorial example is provided on building a simple HTML document with the 'document' object.
IE browser provides the DOM (Document Object Model) API (Application Programming Interface) to allow VBScript code to interact with the browser and the HTML document.
The most commonly used object in the DOM API is the "document" object, which has the following features:
To illustrate some nice features of the "document" object, I wrote this VBScript tutorial example:
<html> <!-- Document_Object.html - Copyright (c) 1998 HerongYang.com. All Rights Reserved. --> <head> <title>Document Object</title> <script type="text/vbscript"> function buildDocument() ' Building a <p> tag dim paragraph set paragraph = document.createElement("p") dim text set text = document.createTextNode("Hello World!") paragraph.appendChild(text) ' Inserting the <p> tag document.body.appendChild(paragraph) document.body.bgColor = "lightblue" end function </script> </head> <body onLoad="buildDocument()"/> </html>
If you run this VBScript page in a browser, you will see the "Hello World!" paragraph with light blue background.
For more tutorial examples on the "document" object, see the DOM API chapters in this book.
