documentMode property

Retrieves the document compatibility mode of the document.

Syntax

Property values

Type: VARIANT

VARIANT of type VT_R4 that receives one of the following values.

5

Internet Explorer 5 mode (also known as "quirks mode").

7

Internet Explorer 7 Standards mode.

Internet Explorer 8 Standards mode.

9

Internet Explorer 9 Standards mode.

Remarks

When the current document has not yet been determined, IHTMLDocument6::documentMode returns a value of zero (0). This usually happens when a document is loading. When a return value of zero is received, try to determine the document compatibility mode at a later time.

This property is available in all compatibility modes.

The document compatibility mode of a document determines how Internet Explorer 8 interprets and renders the document. Document authors generally use meta elements to specify X-UA-Compatible IHTMLMetaElement::httpEquiv headers that specify the document compatibility mode. For more information, see Defining Document Compatibility. In versions of Windows Internet Explorer previous to Internet Explorer 8, IHTMLDocument5::compatMode was solely determined by IHTMLDocument5::doctype.
