The Internet Explorer Scripting Object Model

Just as you can access the Internet Explorer object model from Visual Basic, you can access the scripting object model from Microsoft Visual Basic, Scripting Edition. The scripting object model, which provides access to the browser, is a collection of objects that can be accessed by any scripting engine. VBScript accesses the scripting object model when it is executing code in an HTML page. Developers can also exploit the scripting object model in VBScript code. The scripting object model supports a variety of properties and methods for use directly in VBScript. Figure 3-7 shows the complete scripting model, which is discussed in detail in the sections that follow.
