Default Behaviors Reference
This topic documents a feature of Binary Behaviors, which are obsolete as of Internet Explorer 10.
Introduction to DHTML Behaviors provides a means for Web developers to extend the current Windows Internet Explorer object model. A number of behaviors have been implemented as part of Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 and are referred to as default behaviors.
As of Internet Explorer 5.5 and later, the time2 behavior is available only in the Microsoft Win32 platform. This default behavior enables users to add timed, interactive elements to HTML pages. Using the HTML+TIME (Timed Interactive Multimedia Extensions) extensions, any HTML element can be set to appear at a given time, last for a specified duration, and repeat the action if desired.
This section contains links that provide access to the object model exposed by these default behaviors.
