Syntax

value="value"

Description

The value attribute works in conjunction with the name attribute to pass the necessary parameter or variable information to the parent object or applet element. According to the HTML specifications, the value attribute isn’t a required attribute (only name is required), but it’s rare to see the name attribute specified on its own.

Example

The value of this "shape" parameter is "triangle":

<param name="shape" value="triangle"/>

Value

The value of the value attribute very much depends on the name of the parameter, so there’s no fixed list of possible values.
