Scripting object .style.behavior = "url('coolbutton.htc')"

The following table lists the members exposed by the coolbutton object.

Remarks

The behavior-defined members listed in the preceding table are not accessible through script until the window. onload event fires. Waiting for this event to fire ensures that the document is completely loaded, that all behaviors have been applied to corresponding elements on the document , and, consequently, that all the behavior's properties, methods, and events are available for scripting. Attempting to use any of the behavior-defined members will result in a scripting error indicating that the object does not support that particular member.

The coolbutton behavior can be used only within the coolbar behavior.

The coolbutton behavior inserts a button into a document , as a part of the coolbar behavior. It provides a visual cue in the form of an icon and/or a text cue in the form of a label indicating which action will be performed. Both the icon and the text can be assigned hover effects for the onmouseout event. The coolbar behavior defaults to a familiar Microsoft Win32 style, but can be edited with a full range of Dynamic HTML and cascading style sheets (CSS) properties. These properties can be set at run time so an application can allow the user to turn on and off the text labels on the buttons, as with Windows Internet Explorer.

The coolbutton.htc file can be downloaded from the coolbar  sample page.

In addition to the members and styles previously listed, the coolbutton behavior supports:
