Standards information

Remarks

In HTML 4, this element is deprecated; input is recommended for use instead. The tagName property for isIndex returns input.

The isIndex element belongs in the body of the document.

This element is treated as an input object inside a form object. To access the element from script, you must use the all collection of the document object. For example, the syntax for accessing the disabled property of a isIndex object is:


document.all.oIsindex.disabled=false;

Examples

This example uses the isIndex element to replace the default prompt.


<isindex prompt="Enter a keyword to search for in the index">
