Standards information


Although this property is read/write, no change is visible when you set the size of the input type=reset, input type=submit, and input type=image objects. However, you can detect a change to the IHTMLInputFileElement::size property for these objects in code.

For the input type=text object, the size is in characters and represents the width of the text box. When the size is specified, the select object represents a list box with the specified number of rows.
