This topic describes the SELECT element in the Accessibility API.
In Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 the Select element had its own HWND. Therefore, OLEACC.dll called createAccessibleObject to provide the proxy support for the Select element, resulting in problems with navigation and parentage.
In Internet Explorer 5, the select operation uses WM_GETOBJECT to retrieve an accessible object. This creates a consistent model for the client and unifies the handling of intrinsic objects (objects built into a programming environment or scripting language).
