namedItem method

Retrieves an object or a collection from a specified collection.

Internet Explorer 8



HRESULT retVal = object.namedItem(name, pNode);


name [in]

Type: BSTR

A BSTR that specifies the IHTMLAnchorElement::name or IHTMLElement::id property of the object to retrieve.

pNode [out, retval]

Type: IHTMLElement2

The address of a pointer to a variable that receives an IHTMLElement2 interface for the object or collection if successful, or NULL otherwise.

Return value


If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.


This method first searches for an object with a matching IHTMLElement::id attribute. If a match is not found, then the method searches for an object with a matching IHTMLAnchorElement::name attribute, but only on those elements that are allowed a name attribute.
