beginElement Method

This topic documents a feature of HTML+TIME 2.0, which is obsolete as of Windows Internet Explorer 9.

Starts the element on the timeline.

Syntax

object.beginElement()

Return Value

No return value.

Remarks

This method applies the same action as if the element's begin time is reached on the local timeline. When the beginElement method is called, the element begins. All time child elements are notified and aligned correctly to the local timeline.

Example

This example displays an image when the countdown reaches 0. Click the Restart Timeline button to restart the timeline with the beginElement method.
