How to determine if a HTMLDiv has a sibling HTMLDiv

How to determine if a HTMLDiv has a sibling HTMLDiv, when the sibling object does not have a unique property.

In the example code below we use the Children.length of the parent HTMLDiv.  If the length is > 1 (i.e. 2) then the HTMLDiv has a sibling, if the length is 1 then the HTMLDiv does not have a sibling.

The code can be modified for use with other HTML objects if required.

Sub   Main()
IEWindow ("Caption='How to*'")
HTMLBrowser("Caption='How to*'").Attach
Dim DivAttach As String
Dim hasSibling As Boolean
hasSibling = False
HTMLDiv ("ID=''   Index=13")
eID = HTMLDiv("ID=''   Index=13").ElementID - 1
DivAttach =   "ElementID=" & eID
If   HTMLDiv(DivAttach).Children.Count > 1 Then hasSibling = True
MsgBox hasSibling
End Sub
