FPHTMLInputHiddenElement Object

Office 2003
Multiple objects

Represents an INPUT element of type "hidden" in an HTML document. See also the IHTMLInputHiddenElement object.

Using the FPHTMLInputHiddenElement Object

Use the tags method to return an IHTMLElementCollection collection that represents a collection of all the INPUT elements in a document. Use the Item method to return an FPHTMLInputHiddenElement object that accesses a specific INPUT element, referenced by ordinal number or by the value of the id attribute. Use the type property to determine the type of INPUT element.

Note  The type property is not a member of the IHTMLElement object; however, it will return valid results for the value of the type attribute for an element, which in this case is "hidden".

The following example places the first INPUT element in the active document into an IHTMLElement object variable, then uses the type property to determine the type of INPUT element, and places the variable into an appropriate object variable, providing access to the properties and methods that relate to INPUT elements of the specified type.

    Dim objInput As IHTMLElement
Dim objButton As FPHTMLInputButtonElement
Dim objFile As FPHTMLInputFileElement
Dim objHidden As FPHTMLInputHiddenElement
Dim objImage As FPHTMLInputImage
Dim objText As FPHTMLInputTextElement

Set objInput = ActiveDocument.all.tags("input").Item(0)

Select Case objInput.Type
    Case "button"
        Set objButton = objInput
    Case "file"
        Set objFile = objInput
    Case "hidden"
        Set objHidden = objInput
    Case "image"
        Set objImage = objInput
    Case "text"
        Set objText = objInput
End Select
