vb6 href 'invalid property assignment'

I localize a file to my drive then try to change the html to point to it and get "invalid property assignments". The file saves fine.  The error only happens when I try to change the href to point to it.

The href prop is not read-only.  Please help me stop feeling so damn stupid.  Thx
dim im As HTMLImg
 
    For Each im In tc.getElementsByTagName("img")
        f = "c:\temp\" + id + "-" + Trim(Str(i)) + ".jpg"
        If URLDownloadToFile(0&, img.href, f, BINDF_GETNEWESTVERSION, 0&) <> ERROR_SUCCESS Then Stop
        f = "file:///" + f
--->      im.href = f         <----
        i = i + 1
    Next

hi
i checked and href property of HTMLImg is read-only.

Hmmm...??  I hit F2 in the ide and bring up the object browser and it is not listed read-only.  Many other props are.  Are you using a better source? (Obviously my results seem to agree more with your source.)

Changing the src prop doen't seem to effect the href prop.  But apparently this is what is used tor retrieve an image because the new file will load properly pointing to the new file after changing only src.  Full points to you still if you'll reveal the source (Luke).

changing src prop does change the href prop, i did a test like this:

oimage.src = "C:\Winnt\Zapotec.bmp"
Debug.Print oimage.href

Result:
file:///C:/Winnt/Zapotec.bmp

I appreciate your efforts.  Guess I pay too much attention to stuff in the ide (which didn't update href simultaneous with src).  Skpped over the siimple var print.  (Doh!)

I'm here ready to give points if you'll just come across with your source that has href as read-only.

actually that was listed on my object browser..
HTMLImg-href.bmp

Sunuva...   I'm sending you the points.  But that's not what it looks like in my (i guess old) stand-alone vb6.  Don't have a clue why. Seems identical save no r-o attr.  It was the first thing I checked.  If you are using VisStu maybe things are better there.  Anyway, thanx for the work.
