anchor Method (Windows Scripting - JScript)


Places an HTML anchor with a NAME attribute around specified text in the object.



Required. Any String object or literal.


Required. Text you want to place in the NAME attribute of an HTML anchor.

Call the anchor method to create a named anchor out of a String object. The following example demonstrates how the anchor method accomplishes this:

var strVariable = "This is an anchor";
strVariable = strVariable.anchor("Anchor1");

The value of strVariable after the last statement is:

<A NAME="Anchor1">This is an anchor</A>

No checking is done to see if the tag has already been applied to the string.

Applies To: String Object (Windows Scripting - JScript)
