Error in DHTML project: Method 'QueryStatus' of object 'IDHTMLEdit' failed

I don't know much about the DOM and that side of things, and I can't seem to figure out why the Microsoft vbedit DHTML project refuses to give a context menu for selected tables, and produces the error:

Method 'QueryStatus' of object 'IDHTMLEdit' failed

whenever a table is selected and the "Table" menu is selected.

The project can be found at http://www.mentalis.org/vbexamples/vbexample.php?vbexample=VBEDIT&category=SOURCE

Thanks, Bruce

Insert a table. Click on "Table" menu option. The error occurs in: Sub UpdateMenu at

state = DHTMLEdit1.QueryStatus(command)

err returns: Method 'QueryStatus' of object 'IDHTMLEdit' failed

Also, no specific context menu for table row insertion, delete, etc.

If this error is not reproducible on your machine, any idea on what must be lacking on mine to produce this error would be much appreciated!

I have answered this question myself. Found out that there were several patches (Hotfixes) I installed for IE 6 that were causing this problem. I re-downloaded IE 6 and re-installed. The problem went away.

Thanks for efforts anyway, EDDYKT!!
