Changing DHTML Element Style
The Style object is a property of all DHTML objects except for the Document
object. It contains over 80 properties that enable you to manipulate the appearance
of an element. Following is a brief sampling of those 80+ properties:
BorderColor is a string like the string used for
the Color property.
BorderStyle is a string whose possible values are
"none," "solid," "double," "groove,"
"ridge," "inset," and "outset."
Color is a string whose format is either one of
the accepted color descriptions for the browser (examples would be "black,"
"red," "yellow," "slategray," and many others
for an IE environment) or strings representing a hex number (examples would be
"#FF0000" for pure red, "#00FF00" for pure green, "#0000FF"
for pure blue, and "#FF00FF" for purple).
FontFamily is a string giving the name of a valid
system font group. Some possible values are "serif," "cursive,"
Visibility is a string indicating visibility of
the object, and its most common possible values are "hidden" and "visible"
(a third value, "inherited," works if the object is the child of another
As you can see from the preceding brief list, Style properties having the same
names or similar names to properties of standard VB controls usually don’t
work in exactly the same way. VB constants that you may be used to assigning to
standard control properties won’t work here.
