mergeAttributes method

Copies all read/write attributes to the specified element.

Syntax


HRESULT retVal = object.mergeAttributes(mergeThis, pvarFlags);

Parameters

mergeThis [in]

Type: IHTMLElement

Pointer to an IDispatch that specifies the attributes copied to the object that invokes IHTMLElement2::mergeAttributes.

pvarFlags [in, optional]

Type: VARIANT

Available as of Internet Explorer 5.5. Pointer to a VARIANT_BOOL that specifies one of the following values:

true

Default. Preserve the identity of the object to which attributes are being merged.

false

Do not preserve the identity of the object to which attributes are being merged.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Standards information

There are no standards that apply here.

Remarks

The IHTMLElement2::mergeAttributes method copies persistent HTML attributes, events, and styles.

In Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 and earlier, attributes that are read-only are not merged.

As of Internet Explorer 5.5, by choosing not to preserve the identity of the destination object, you can merge all attributes of an object.
