Notes

Remarks

When you submit a form, use the name property to bind the value of the control. The name is not the value that is displayed for the input type=button, input type=reset, and input type=submit input types. The internally stored value is submitted with the form, not the displayed value. When you submit a form, use the name property to bind the value of the control. The name is not the value displayed for the input type=button, input type=reset, and input type=submit input types. The internally stored value is submitted with the form, not the displayed value. Microsoft JScript allows you to change the name at run time. This does not cause the name in the programming model to change in the collection of elements, but it does change the name that you use for submitting elements. Windows Internet Explorer 8 and later. In IE8 Standards mode, dynamically setting the name attribute on an input type=radio button correctly applies that button to the same named group. For more information about IE8 mode, see Defining Document Compatibility. In Internet Explorer 8 and later versions, you can set the NAME attribute at run time on elements that are dynamically created with the createElement method. To create an element with a NAME attribute in earlier versions of Windows Internet Explorer, include the attribute and its value when you use the createElement method. In Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 and later versions, this property applies to the attribute object.
