Sets or retrieves a value that indicates whether the text in the object has blink, line-through, overline, or underline decorations.
Integer value = object.put_textDecoration( v);Integer value = object.get_textDecoration(* sDecoration);
Type: BSTRone of the values listed in Possible Values.
Default. Text has no decoration.
Text is underlined.
Text has a line over it.
Text has a line drawn through it.
none | underline | overline | line-through | blink
|Applies To||All elements|
The default value is different for the following tags.
- Default value is underline for a when used with IHTMLLinkElement4::href, u, and ins.
- Default value is line-through for strike, s, and del.
If the value none is placed at the end of the values, all values are cleared.
If the object has no text (for example, the img object in HTML) or is an empty object (for example, "<EM></EM>"), this property has no effect.
If you set the IHTMLRuleStyle::textDecoration attribute to none on the body object, the a objects are still underlined. To remove the underline from the a objects, either set the style inline or use a as a selector in the global style sheet.
Specifying the IHTMLRuleStyle::textDecoration property for block elements affects all inline children. If it is specified for, or affects, an inline element, it affects all boxes generated by the element.
The overline and blink possible values are available as of Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0. Although blink is exposed, it is not rendered.
In Windows Internet Explorer 8 and later, when the IHTMLRuleStyle::textDecoration property is set to overline and/or underline, the line will remain at the same vertical level and the same thickness across all child elements of the parent element on which the text decoration has been set. (This does not apply to the line-through value.) In Windows Internet Explorer 7 and earlier, the text decoration adjusts to correspond to the size and thickness of each child element.
