ATOMICSELECTION Attribute

Specifies whether the element and its contents must be selected as a whole, indivisible unit.

Syntax

HTML <ELEMENT ATOMICSELECTION=bAtomicSelection ... >
Scripting N/A

Possible Values

bAtomicSelection A Boolean that specifies the following values.
false
Default. The element content can be selected individually.
true
The element and its content can be selected only as a single unit.

Remarks

If the document is not in atomic selection mode, the ATOMICSELECTION attribute is ignored. To turn on the atomic selection mode, run the IDM_ATOMICSELECTION command with the value of true.

A document that is in atomic selection mode has slower performance when a selection is made anywhere in the document.
