The element.Name property returns the tag name and not the name given to the element as an attribute. How can I access the name of the element in run-time?

 

The element.Name property gets the name of the tag that defines the element and not the name of the element defined by the user as an attribute. The user can access the name of the element with the help of the element.Attributes property.

The following HTML document shows how an input element with a name is declared and the code snippet shows how it is accessed in HTMLUI.

C#

C#

INPUTElementImpl textBox1;

Hashtable htmlelements = this.htmluiControl1.Document.GetElementsByUserIdHash();

//accessing the input element

textBox1 = htmlelements["txt1"] as INPUTElementImpl;

//accessing the tag name of the element

Console.WriteLine("Tag Name of TextBox1:\n"+ textBox1.Name.ToString());

//accessing the attribute name of the element

Console.WriteLine("Name given for TextBox1:\n"+ textBox1.Attributes["name"].Value);

VB

Private textBox1 As INPUTElementImpl

Private htmlelements As Hashtable = Me.htmluiControl1.Document.GetElementsByUserIdHash()

'accessing the input element

Private textBox1 = CType(IIf(TypeOf htmlelements("txt1") Is INPUTElementImpl,

htmlelements("txt1"), Nothing), INPUTElementImpl)

'accessing the tag name of the element

Console.WriteLine("Tag Name of TextBox1:" & Constants.vbLf+ textBox1.Name.ToString())

'accessing the attribute name of the element

Console.WriteLine("Name given for TextBox1:" & Constants.vbLf+ textBox1.Attributes("name").Value)
