Members Table

Remarks

The behavior-defined members listed in the preceding table are not accessible through script until the window. onload event fires. Waiting for this event to fire ensures that the document is completely loaded, that all behaviors have been applied to corresponding elements on the document , and, consequently, that all the behavior's properties, methods, and events are available for scripting. Attempting to use any of the behavior-defined members will result in a scripting error indicating that the object does not support that particular member.

Both Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) and Microsoft JScript versions of the rowover.htc file can be downloaded from the rowover  sample page.

In addition to the members and styles previously listed, the rowover behavior supports cursor.

You must set the cellSpacing attribute of the table element equal to zero. If the attribute is not set or is greater than zero, the highlighting might be lost as you move between cells in the same row.

Example

This sample uses the JScript version of the rowover.htc file to demonstrate the implementation and adjustments of the rowover behavior.


<style>
.rowover{behavior: url(rowover_js.htc)}
</style>

<TABLE CLASS = "rowover">
<TR><TD>Some Text</TD></TR>
<TR><TD>Some Text</TD></TR>
<TR><TD>Some Text</TD></TR>
</TABLE>
