Coding the PARAM Tag

The <PARAM> tag is used to pass a sequence of parameters to the HTML Help ActiveX control to specify a feature and any additional information that the feature may require.

The <PARAM> tag is valid only within an <OBJECT> tag. The end tag is optional.

Attribute Description
NAME Specifies a parameter. The first parameter in the sequence must be Command.
VALUE Specifies a valid value for the parameter specified in the NAME attribute.



  • Never omit the <PARAM> tag from an HTML Help ActiveX control <OBJECT> tag, as this may result in unexpected behavior.
  • For more information about other attributes supported by the <OBJECT> and <PARAM> tags, see a comprehensive HTML Reference, such as the HTML Elements reference on the MSDN Online Web Workshop.
