How do I access an HTML element at the point I am clicking on the HTMLUI control?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: HTMLUIControl |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


The htmluiControl.GetElementAtClientPoint() method gets the tag element that is present at the mentioned point.

The following code snippet shows tracing the clicked point from the MouseDown event and accessing the html element from the specified point.


htmluiControl.MouseDown += new System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventHandler(this.htmluiControl_MouseDown);

private void htmluiControl_MouseDown(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e)


 IHTMLElement element = htmluiControl.GetElementAtClientPoint(e.X, e.Y);

 if(element.Attributes.Contains("style") == false)




 element.Attributes["style"].Value = "background-color: blue;";




Private htmluiControl.MouseDown += New System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventHandler(Me.htmluiControl_MouseDown)

Private Sub htmluiControl_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs)

 Dim element As IHTMLElement = htmluiControl.GetElementAtClientPoint(e.X, e.Y)

 If element.Attributes.Contains("style") = False Then


 End If

 element.Attributes("style").Value = "background-color: blue;"


End Sub
