IElement Methods

The IElement type exposes the following members.

Methods
  NameDescription
Public methodAppendChild
Adds the node
newChild
to the end of the list of children of this node. If the
newChild
is already in the tree, it is first removed.
(Inherited from INode.)
Public methodCloneNode (Inherited from INode.)
Public methodGetAttribute
Retrieves an attribute value by name.
Public methodGetAttributeNode
Public methodGetAttributeNodeNS
Retrieves an
Attr
node by local name and namespace URI. HTML-only DOM implementations do not need to implement this method.
Public methodGetAttributeNS
Retrieves an attribute value by local name and namespace URI. HTML-only DOM implementations do not need to implement this method.
Public methodGetElementsByTagName
Returns a
NodeList
of all descendant
Elements
with a given tag name, in the order in which they are encountered in a preorder traversal of this
Element
tree.
Public methodGetElementsByTagNameNS
Returns a
NodeList
of all the descendant
Elements
with a given local name and namespace URI in the order in which they are encountered in a preorder traversal of this
Element
tree.
HTML-only DOM implementations do not need to implement this method.
Public methodHasAttribute
Returns
true
when an attribute with a given name is specified on this element or has a default value,
false
otherwise.
Public methodHasAttributeNS
Returns
true
when an attribute with a given local name and namespace URI is specified on this element or has a default value,
false
otherwise. HTML-only DOM implementations do not need to implement this method.
Public methodHasAttributes
Returns whether this node (if it is an element) has any attributes.
(Inherited from INode.)
Public methodHasChildNodes
Returns whether this node has any children.
(Inherited from INode.)
Public methodInsertBefore
Inserts the node
newChild
before the existing child node
refChild
. If
refChild
is
null
, insert
newChild
at the end of the list of children.
If
newChild
is a
DocumentFragment
object, all of its children are inserted, in the same order, before
refChild
. If the
newChild
is already in the tree, it is first removed.
(Inherited from INode.)
Public methodIsSupported
Tests whether the DOM implementation implements a specific feature and that feature is supported by this node.
(Inherited from INode.)
Public methodNormalize
Puts all
Text
nodes in the full depth of the sub-tree underneath this
Node
, including attribute nodes, into a "normal" form where only structure (e.g., elements, comments, processing instructions, CDATA sections, and entity references) separates
Text
nodes, i.e., there are neither adjacent
Text
nodes nor empty
Text
nodes. This can be used to ensure that the DOM view of a document is the same as if it were saved and re-loaded, and is useful when operations (such as XPointer lookups) that depend on a particular document tree structure are to be used.In cases where the document contains
CDATASections
, the normalize operation alone may not be sufficient, since XPointers do not differentiate between
Text
nodes and
CDATASection
nodes.
(Inherited from INode.)
Public methodRemoveAttribute
Public methodRemoveAttributeNode
Removes the specified attribute node. If the removed
Attr
has a default value it is immediately replaced. The replacing attribute has the same namespace URI and local name, as well as the original prefix, when applicable.
Public methodRemoveAttributeNS
Public methodRemoveChild
Removes the child node indicated by
oldChild
from the list of children, and returns it.
(Inherited from INode.)
Public methodReplaceChild (Inherited from INode.)
Public methodSetAttribute
Public methodSetAttributeNode
Public methodSetAttributeNodeNS
Public methodSetAttributeNS
