controlRange property

A collection of elements returned by the createControlRange or createRange method.

Syntax

JavaScript

range = object.controlRange

Property values

Type: IUnknown

Array of elements created with the createControlRange method.

Standards information

There are no standards that apply here.

Remarks

Instead of using the collection's item method, you can use an index to directly access an element in the collection. For example, the element returned from the collection represented by oColl(0) is the same as the element returned by oColl.item(0).

The controlRange collection is available as of Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to use the createRange method to retrieve the controlRange collection.

Code example: http://samples.msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/samples/author/dhtml/collections/controlrange.htm


...
function fnChangeFontFamily    (){
  if (document.selection.type == "Control"){ 
    var oControlRange = document.selection.createRange();
    for (i = 0; i < oControlRange.length; i++)
      if (oControlRange(i).tagName != "img")
       oControlRange(i).style.fontFamily=event.srcElement.style.fontFamily;
  }
}
...
<!-- Text Font-Family Controls  -->
<span  onclick="fnChangeFontFamily();">
    <div style="height: 25px; cursor:hand; font-family:times; 
        font-size:14pt; font-weight:normal; color:white">Times</div>

        font-size:14pt; font-weight:normal; color:white">Arial</div>
    <div style="height: 25px; cursor:hand; font-family:georgia; 
        font-size:14pt; font-weight:normal; color:white">Georgia</div>
