target property

Sets or retrieves the window or frame at which to target content.

Syntax

HRESULT value = object.put_target( v);HRESULT value = object.get_target(* p);

Property values

Type: BSTR

name

The name of the target window or frame.

_blank

Load the linked document into a new blank window. This window is not named.

For Windows Runtime apps using JavaScript only: Loads the linked document in the default browser. If the linked document is in the app's package, the link won't navigate to the document because the browser can't display documents contained in an app's package.

_parent

Load the linked document into the immediate parent of the document the link is in.

_self

Default. Load the linked document into the window in which the link was clicked (the active window).

_top

Load the linked document into the topmost window.

Remarks

If there is no existing window or frame with the same name as specified in the IHTMLAreaElement::target, a new window is opened with a name equal to the value of the IHTMLAreaElement::target.

Windows Internet Explorer 8 and later. When Protected Mode is enabled and a webpage contains an anchor link with a named IHTMLAreaElement::target, Windows Internet Explorer opens the target of the link in a new window when the target has a different integrity level than the webpage containing the link. For more information, see Understanding and Working in Protected Mode Internet Explorer.

In Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, the value of the IHTMLAreaElement::target parameter of this property specifies that a linked document loads in the content area of the IHTMLAreaElement::target.

In a Windows Runtime app using JavaScript, if you set the IHTMLAreaElement::target attribute to the name of an iframe, the iframe loads the linked document. If the specified IHTMLAreaElement::target doesn't exist, the link opens in the default browser.
