Description
Sets and returns the comparison mode for comparing string keys in a Dictionary object.
Syntax
object.CompareMode[ = compare]

The CompareMode property has the following parts:

Part Description
object Required. Always the name of a Dictionary object.
compare Optional. If provided, compare is a value representing the comparison mode. Acceptable values are 0 (Binary), 1 (Text), 2 (Database). Values greater than 2 can be used to refer to comparisons using specific Locale IDs (LCID).

Remarks
An error occurs if you try to change the comparison mode of a Dictionary object that already contains data.

The following example illustrates the use of the CompareMode property:

function TestCompareMode(key)
{
  // Create some variables.
  var a, d; 
  var BinaryCompare = 0, TextCompare = 1;
  d = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.Dictionary");
  // Set Compare mode to Text.
  d.CompareMode = TextCompare;
  // Add some keys and items.
  d.Add("a", "Athens"); 
  d.Add("b", "Belgrade");
  d.Add("c", "Cairo");
  return(d.Item(key));
}
