MOREINFO Element

The MOREINFO element specifies a URL to a Web site, e-mail address, or script command associated with a show, clip, or banner.

   HREF = "URL"
   TARGET = "Frame"
/>

Attributes 

HREF (required)

URL to a Web site, e-mail address, or script command.

TARGET

Value defining the frame or window in which the browser will open the page defined by the HREF attribute.

This can be a string containing a window name, or one of the following values.

Value Description
_blank The document loads in a new browser window.
_self The document loads in the same frame as the current document containing the Windows Media Player control.
_parent The document loads in the immediate parent frame of the current frame, or the current frame if there is no parent frame.
_top The document loads in the full browser window, replacing all other frames or documents.

Parent/Child Elements

Hierarchy Elements
Parent elements ASX, ENTRY, BANNER
Child elements None

Remarks

This element specifies a URL to a Web site, e-mail address, or script command. The user can access the target of the URL by clicking on the graphic or text associated with the MOREINFO element. The details depend on the parent element of the MOREINFO element:

  • If the MOREINFO element is the child of an ASX element, the user can access the URL by clicking the show title.
  • If the MOREINFO element is the child of an ENTRY element, the user can access the URL by clicking the clip title.
  • If the MOREINFO element is the child of a BANNER element, the user can access the URL by clicking the banner graphic.

If the HREF attribute specifies a URL to a Web site, the browser opens and navigates to the URL. If the HREF attribute specifies an e-mail address, the user's e-mail application starts. If the HREF attribute specifies a script command, the script command executes in the browser.

Note   If the MOREINFO element appears within an ASX or ENTRY element, when the mouse cursor is held over the title of the show (for an ASX element) or clip (for an ENTRY element), the URL defined in the HREF attribute can be selected and accessed by Windows Media Player.

The TARGET attribute defines the frame or window in which the browser will open the page defined by the HREF attribute. The values for this attribute follow standard HTML syntax and definitions. In the case of a control embedded in a Web page, if no TARGET attribute is defined, the URL loads the current browser window and replaces the existing page, which means the content stops playing. Therefore, it is recommended that you always specify a TARGET attribute when embedding the Windows Media Player control in a Web page.

If the metafile is opened in the stand-alone Windows Media Player, the TARGET attribute is ignored, and the URL loads in an existing browser window. If there is no browser window currently open, the URL loads in a new browser window.
