Detailed Description

The DOMDocument interface represents the entire XML document.

Conceptually, it is the root of the document tree, and provides the primary access to the document's data.

Since elements, text nodes, comments, processing instructions, etc. cannot exist outside the context of a DOMDocument, the DOMDocument interface also contains the factory methods needed to create these objects. The DOMNode objects created have a ownerDocument attribute which associates them with the DOMDocument within whose context they were created.

See also the Document Object Model (DOM) Level 2 Core Specification.


Constructor & Destructor Documentation

DOMDocument::DOMDocument (  )  [protected]

virtual DOMDocument::~DOMDocument (  )  [virtual]

Destructor.


Member Function Documentation

virtual DOMElement* DOMDocument::createElement ( const XMLCh *  tagName  )  [pure virtual]

Creates an element of the type specified.

Note that the instance returned implements the DOMElement interface, so attributes can be specified directly on the returned object.
In addition, if there are known attributes with default values, DOMAttr nodes representing them are automatically created and attached to the element.
To create an element with a qualified name and namespace URI, use the createElementNS method.

Parameters:
tagName The name of the element type to instantiate. For XML, this is case-sensitive.
Returns:
A new DOMElement object with the nodeName attribute set to tagName, and localName, prefix, and namespaceURI set to null.
Exceptions:
DOMException INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR: Raised if the specified name contains an illegal character.
Since:
DOM Level 1

virtual DOMDocumentFragment* DOMDocument::createDocumentFragment (  )  [pure virtual]

Creates an empty DOMDocumentFragment object.

Returns:
A new DOMDocumentFragment.
Since:
DOM Level 1

virtual DOMText* DOMDocument::createTextNode ( const XMLCh *  data  )  [pure virtual]

Creates a DOMText node given the specified string.

Parameters:
data The data for the node.
Returns:
The new DOMText object.
Since:
DOM Level 1

virtual DOMComment* DOMDocument::createComment ( const XMLCh *  data  )  [pure virtual]

Creates a DOMComment node given the specified string.

Parameters:
data The data for the node.
Returns:
The new DOMComment object.
Since:
DOM Level 1

virtual DOMCDATASection* DOMDocument::createCDATASection ( const XMLCh *  data  )  [pure virtual]

Creates a DOMCDATASection node whose value is the specified string.

Parameters:
data The data for the DOMCDATASection contents.
Returns:
The new DOMCDATASection object.
Since:
DOM Level 1

virtual DOMProcessingInstruction* DOMDocument::createProcessingInstruction ( const XMLCh *  target,
const XMLCh *  data 
) [pure virtual]

Creates a DOMProcessingInstruction node given the specified name and data strings.

Parameters:
target The target part of the processing instruction.
data The data for the node.
Returns:
The new DOMProcessingInstruction object.
Exceptions:
DOMException INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR: Raised if the specified target contains an illegal character.
Since:
DOM Level 1

virtual DOMAttr* DOMDocument::createAttribute ( const XMLCh *  name  )  [pure virtual]

Creates an DOMAttr of the given name.

Note that the DOMAttr instance can then be set on an DOMElement using the setAttributeNode method.
To create an attribute with a qualified name and namespace URI, use the createAttributeNS method.

Parameters:
name The name of the attribute.
Returns:
A new DOMAttr object with the nodeName attribute set to name, and localName, prefix, and namespaceURI set to null. The value of the attribute is the empty string.
Exceptions:
DOMException INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR: Raised if the specified name contains an illegal character.
Since:
DOM Level 1

virtual DOMEntityReference* DOMDocument::createEntityReference ( const XMLCh *  name  )  [pure virtual]

Creates an DOMEntityReference object.

In addition, if the referenced entity is known, the child list of the DOMEntityReference node is made the same as that of the corresponding DOMEntity node.If any descendant of the DOMEntity node has an unbound namespace prefix, the corresponding descendant of the created DOMEntityReference node is also unbound; (its namespaceURI is null). The DOM Level 2 does not support any mechanism to resolve namespace prefixes.

Parameters:
name The name of the entity to reference.
Returns:
The new DOMEntityReference object.
Exceptions:
DOMException INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR: Raised if the specified name contains an illegal character.
Since:
DOM Level 1

virtual DOMDocumentType* DOMDocument::getDoctype (  )  const [pure virtual]

The Document Type Declaration (see DOMDocumentType) associated with this document.

For XML documents without a document type declaration this returns null. The DOM Level 2 does not support editing the Document Type Declaration. docType cannot be altered in any way, including through the use of methods inherited from the DOMNode interface, such as insertNode or removeNode.

Since:
DOM Level 1

virtual DOMImplementation* DOMDocument::getImplementation (  )  const [pure virtual]

The DOMImplementation object that handles this document.

A DOM application may use objects from multiple implementations.

This is a convenience attribute that allows direct access to the child node that is the root element of the document.

Since:
DOM Level 1

virtual DOMNodeList* DOMDocument::getElementsByTagName ( const XMLCh *  tagname  )  const [pure virtual]

Returns a DOMNodeList of all the DOMElement(s) with a given tag name in the order in which they are encountered in a preorder traversal of the DOMDocument tree.

The returned node list is "live", in that changes to the document tree made after a nodelist was initially returned will be immediately reflected in the node list.

Parameters:
tagname The name of the tag to match on. The special value "*" matches all tags.
Returns:
A new DOMNodeList object containing all the matched DOMElement(s).
Since:
DOM Level 1

virtual DOMNode* DOMDocument::importNode ( DOMNode importedNode,
bool  deep 
) [pure virtual]

Imports a node from another document to this document.

The returned node has no parent; (parentNode is null). The source node is not altered or removed from the original document; this method creates a new copy of the source node.
For all nodes, importing a node creates a node object owned by the importing document, with attribute values identical to the source node's nodeName and nodeType, plus the attributes related to namespaces (prefix, localName, and namespaceURI). As in the cloneNode operation on a DOMNode, the source node is not altered.
Additional information is copied as appropriate to the nodeType, attempting to mirror the behavior expected if a fragment of XML source was copied from one document to another, recognizing that the two documents may have different DTDs in the XML case. The following list describes the specifics for each type of node.

ATTRIBUTE_NODE
The ownerElement attribute is set to null and the specified flag is set to true on the generated DOMAttr. The descendants of the source DOMAttr are recursively imported and the resulting nodes reassembled to form the corresponding subtree. Note that the deep parameter has no effect on DOMAttr nodes; they always carry their children with them when imported.
DOCUMENT_FRAGMENT_NODE
If the deep option was set to true, the descendants of the source element are recursively imported and the resulting nodes reassembled to form the corresponding subtree. Otherwise, this simply generates an empty DOMDocumentFragment.
DOCUMENT_NODE
DOMDocument nodes cannot be imported.
DOCUMENT_TYPE_NODE
DOMDocumentType nodes cannot be imported.
ELEMENT_NODE
Specified attribute nodes of the source element are imported, and the generated DOMAttr nodes are attached to the generated DOMElement. Default attributes are not copied, though if the document being imported into defines default attributes for this element name, those are assigned. If the importNode deep parameter was set to true, the descendants of the source element are recursively imported and the resulting nodes reassembled to form the corresponding subtree.
ENTITY_NODE
DOMEntity nodes can be imported, however in the current release of the DOM the DOMDocumentType is readonly. Ability to add these imported nodes to a DOMDocumentType will be considered for addition to a future release of the DOM.On import, the publicId, systemId, and notationName attributes are copied. If a deep import is requested, the descendants of the the source DOMEntity are recursively imported and the resulting nodes reassembled to form the corresponding subtree.
ENTITY_REFERENCE_NODE
Only the DOMEntityReference itself is copied, even if a deep import is requested, since the source and destination documents might have defined the entity differently. If the document being imported into provides a definition for this entity name, its value is assigned.
NOTATION_NODE
DOMNotation nodes can be imported, however in the current release of the DOM the DOMDocumentType is readonly. Ability to add these imported nodes to a DOMDocumentType will be considered for addition to a future release of the DOM.On import, the publicId and systemId attributes are copied. Note that the deep parameter has no effect on DOMNotation nodes since they never have any children.
PROCESSING_INSTRUCTION_NODE
The imported node copies its target and data values from those of the source node.
TEXT_NODE, CDATA_SECTION_NODE, COMMENT_NODE
These three types of nodes inheriting from DOMCharacterData copy their data and length attributes from those of the source node.
Parameters:
importedNode The node to import.
deep If true, recursively import the subtree under the specified node; if false, import only the node itself, as explained above. This has no effect on DOMAttr , DOMEntityReference, and DOMNotation nodes.
Returns:
The imported node that belongs to this DOMDocument.
Exceptions:
DOMException NOT_SUPPORTED_ERR: Raised if the type of node being imported is not supported.
Since:
DOM Level 2

virtual DOMElement* DOMDocument::createElementNS ( const XMLCh *  namespaceURI,
const XMLCh *  qualifiedName 
) [pure virtual]

Creates an element of the given qualified name and namespace URI.

Parameters:
namespaceURI The namespace URI of the element to create.
qualifiedName The qualified name of the element type to instantiate.
Returns:
A new DOMElement object with the following attributes:
Attribute Value
DOMNode.nodeName qualifiedName
DOMNode.namespaceURI namespaceURI
DOMNode.prefix prefix, extracted from qualifiedName, or null if there is no prefix
DOMNode.localName local name, extracted from qualifiedName
DOMElement.tagName qualifiedName
Exceptions:
DOMException INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR: Raised if the specified qualified name contains an illegal character, per the XML 1.0 specification .
NAMESPACE_ERR: Raised if the qualifiedName is malformed per the Namespaces in XML specification, if the qualifiedName has a prefix and the namespaceURI is null, or if the qualifiedName has a prefix that is "xml" and the namespaceURI is different from " http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace" .
NOT_SUPPORTED_ERR: Always thrown if the current document does not support the "XML" feature, since namespaces were defined by XML.
Since:
DOM Level 2

virtual DOMAttr* DOMDocument::createAttributeNS ( const XMLCh *  namespaceURI,
const XMLCh *  qualifiedName 
) [pure virtual]

Creates an attribute of the given qualified name and namespace URI.

Parameters:
namespaceURI The namespace URI of the attribute to create.
qualifiedName The qualified name of the attribute to instantiate.
Returns:
A new DOMAttr object with the following attributes:
Attribute Value
DOMNode.nodeName qualifiedName
DOMNode.namespaceURI namespaceURI
DOMNode.prefix prefix, extracted from qualifiedName, or null if there is no prefix
DOMNode.localName local name, extracted from qualifiedName
DOMAttr.name qualifiedName
DOMNode.nodeValue the empty string
Exceptions:
DOMException INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR: Raised if the specified qualified name contains an illegal character, per the XML 1.0 specification .
NAMESPACE_ERR: Raised if the qualifiedName is malformed per the Namespaces in XML specification, if the qualifiedName has a prefix and the namespaceURI is null, if the qualifiedName has a prefix that is "xml" and the namespaceURI is different from " http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace", or if the qualifiedName, or its prefix, is "xmlns" and the namespaceURI is different from " http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/".
NOT_SUPPORTED_ERR: Always thrown if the current document does not support the "XML" feature, since namespaces were defined by XML.
Since:
DOM Level 2

virtual DOMNodeList* DOMDocument::getElementsByTagNameNS ( const XMLCh *  namespaceURI,
const XMLCh *  localName 
) const [pure virtual]

Returns a DOMNodeList of all the DOMElement(s) with a given local name and namespace URI in the order in which they are encountered in a preorder traversal of the DOMDocument tree.

Parameters:
namespaceURI The namespace URI of the elements to match on. The special value "*" matches all namespaces.
localName The local name of the elements to match on. The special value "*" matches all local names.
Returns:
A new DOMNodeList object containing all the matched DOMElement(s).
Since:
DOM Level 2

virtual DOMElement* DOMDocument::getElementById ( const XMLCh *  elementId  )  const [pure virtual]

Returns the DOMElement whose ID is given by elementId.

If no such element exists, returns null. Behavior is not defined if more than one element has this ID. The DOM implementation must have information that says which attributes are of type ID. Attributes with the name "ID" are not of type ID unless so defined. Implementations that do not know whether attributes are of type ID or not are expected to return null.

Parameters:
elementId The unique id value for an element.
Returns:
The matching element.

Rename an existing node.

When possible this simply changes the name of the given node, otherwise this creates a new node with the specified name and replaces the existing node with the new node as described below. This only applies to nodes of type ELEMENT_NODE and ATTRIBUTE_NODE.
When a new node is created, the following operations are performed: the new node is created, any registered event listener is registered on the new node, any user data attached to the old node is removed from that node, the old node is removed from its parent if it has one, the children are moved to the new node, if the renamed node is an DOMElement its attributes are moved to the new node, the new node is inserted at the position the old node used to have in its parent's child nodes list if it has one, the user data that was attached to the old node is attach to the new node, the user data event NODE_RENAMED is fired.
When the node being renamed is an DOMAttr that is attached to an DOMElement, the node is first removed from the DOMElement attributes map. Then, once renamed, either by modifying the existing node or creating a new one as described above, it is put back.

"Experimental - subject to change"

Parameters:
n The node to rename.
namespaceURI The new namespaceURI.
name The new qualified name.
Returns:
The renamed node. This is either the specified node or the new node that was created to replace the specified node.
Exceptions:
DOMException NOT_SUPPORTED_ERR: Raised when the type of the specified node is neither ELEMENT_NODE nor ATTRIBUTE_NODE.
WRONG_DOCUMENT_ERR: Raised when the specified node was created from a different document than this document.
NAMESPACE_ERR: Raised if the qualifiedName is malformed per the Namespaces in XML specification, if the qualifiedName has a prefix and the namespaceURI is null, or if the qualifiedName has a prefix that is "xml" and the namespaceURI is different from " http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace" . Also raised, when the node being renamed is an attribute, if the qualifiedName, or its prefix, is "xmlns" and the namespaceURI is different from "http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/".
Since:
DOM Level 3

virtual DOMNode* DOMDocument::adoptNode ( DOMNode source  )  [pure virtual]

Changes the ownerDocument of a node, its children, as well as the attached attribute nodes if there are any.

If the node has a parent it is first removed from its parent child list. This effectively allows moving a subtree from one document to another. The following list describes the specifics for each type of node.

"Experimental - subject to change"

ATTRIBUTE_NODE
The ownerElement attribute is set to null and the specified flag is set to true on the adopted DOMAttr. The descendants of the source DOMAttr are recursively adopted.
DOCUMENT_FRAGMENT_NODE
The descendants of the source node are recursively adopted.
DOCUMENT_NODE
DOMDocument nodes cannot be adopted.
DOCUMENT_TYPE_NODE
DOMDocumentType nodes cannot be adopted.
ELEMENT_NODE
Specified attribute nodes of the source element are adopted, and the generated DOMAttr nodes. Default attributes are discarded, though if the document being adopted into defines default attributes for this element name, those are assigned. The descendants of the source element are recursively adopted.
ENTITY_NODE
DOMEntity nodes cannot be adopted.
ENTITY_REFERENCE_NODE
Only the DOMEntityReference node itself is adopted, the descendants are discarded, since the source and destination documents might have defined the entity differently. If the document being imported into provides a definition for this entity name, its value is assigned.
NOTATION_NODE
DOMNotation nodes cannot be adopted.
PROCESSING_INSTRUCTION_NODE, TEXT_NODE, CDATA_SECTION_NODE, COMMENT_NODE
These nodes can all be adopted. No specifics.
Parameters:
source The node to move into this document.
Returns:
The adopted node, or null if this operation fails, such as when the source node comes from a different implementation.
Exceptions:
DOMException NOT_SUPPORTED_ERR: Raised if the source node is of type DOCUMENT, DOCUMENT_TYPE.
NO_MODIFICATION_ALLOWED_ERR: Raised when the source node is readonly.
Since:
DOM Level 3

virtual void DOMDocument::normalizeDocument (  )  [pure virtual]

This method acts as if the document was going through a save and load cycle, putting the document in a "normal" form.

The actual result depends on the features being set. See DOMConfiguration for details.

"Experimental - subject to change"


Noticeably this method normalizes DOMText nodes, makes the document "namespace wellformed", according to the algorithm described below in pseudo code, by adding missing namespace declaration attributes and adding or changing namespace prefixes, updates the replacement tree of DOMEntityReference nodes, normalizes attribute values, etc.
Mutation events, when supported, are generated to reflect the changes occuring on the document. Note that this is a partial implementation. Not all the required features are implemented. Currently DOMAttr and DOMText nodes are normalized. Features to remove DOMComment and DOMCDATASection work. The feature to normalize namespaces is implemented. This feature is called "namespaces" and is incorectly documented in the current WD.

Since:
DOM Level 3

virtual DOMConfiguration* DOMDocument::getDOMConfiguration (  )  const [pure virtual]

The configuration used when Document.normalizeDocument is invoked.

Returns:
The DOMConfiguration from this DOMDocument
Note that this is a partial implementation. Not all the required features are implemented and this is only used by normalizeDocument. Currently DOMAttr and DOMText nodes are normalized. Features to remove DOMComment and DOMCDATASection work. The feature to normalize namespaces is implemented. This feature is called "namespaces" and is incorectly documented in the current WD.
