Standards information

There are no standards that apply here.


The IHTMLControlRange::scrollIntoView method is useful for immediately showing the user the result of some action without requiring the user to manually scroll through the document to find the result.

Depending on the size of the given object and the current window, this method might not be able to put the item at the very top or very bottom, but will position the object as close to the requested position as possible.
