Detailed Description

The DOMImplementation interface provides a number of methods for performing operations that are independent of any particular instance of the document object model.

Member Function Documentation

virtual bool DOMImplementation::hasFeature ( const XMLCh *  feature,
const XMLCh *  version 
) const [pure virtual]

Test if the DOM implementation implements a specific feature.

Parameters:
feature The name of the feature to test (case-insensitive). The values used by DOM features are defined throughout the DOM Level 2 specifications and listed in the section. The name must be an XML name. To avoid possible conflicts, as a convention, names referring to features defined outside the DOM specification should be made unique.
version This is the version number of the feature to test. In Level 2, the string can be either "2.0" or "1.0". If the version is not specified, supporting any version of the feature causes the method to return true.
Returns:
true if the feature is implemented in the specified version, false otherwise.
Since:
DOM Level 1

virtual DOMDocumentType* DOMImplementation::createDocumentType ( const XMLCh *  qualifiedName,
const XMLCh *  publicId,
const XMLCh *  systemId 
) [pure virtual]

Creates an empty DOMDocumentType node.

Entity declarations and notations are not made available. Entity reference expansions and default attribute additions do not occur. It is expected that a future version of the DOM will provide a way for populating a DOMDocumentType.

Parameters:
qualifiedName The qualified name of the document type to be created.
publicId The external subset public identifier.
systemId The external subset system identifier.
Returns:
A new DOMDocumentType node with ownerDocument set to null.
Exceptions:
DOMException INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR: Raised if the specified qualified name contains an illegal character.
NAMESPACE_ERR: Raised if the qualifiedName is malformed.
NOT_SUPPORTED_ERR: May be raised by DOM implementations which do not support the "XML" feature, if they choose not to support this method. Other features introduced in the future, by the DOM WG or in extensions defined by other groups, may also demand support for this method; please consult the definition of the feature to see if it requires this method.
Since:
DOM Level 2

virtual DOMDocument* DOMImplementation::createDocument ( const XMLCh *  namespaceURI,
const XMLCh *  qualifiedName,
DOMDocumentType doctype,
MemoryManager *const   manager = XMLPlatformUtils::fgMemoryManager 
) [pure virtual]

Creates a DOMDocument object of the specified type with its document element.

Parameters:
namespaceURI The namespace URI of the document element to create.
qualifiedName The qualified name of the document element to be created.
doctype The type of document to be created or null. When doctype is not null, its ownerDocument attribute is set to the document being created.
manager Pointer to the memory manager to be used to allocate objects.
Returns:
A new DOMDocument object.
Exceptions:
DOMException INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR: Raised if the specified qualified name contains an illegal character.
NAMESPACE_ERR: Raised if the qualifiedName is malformed, 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" , or if the DOM implementation does not support the "XML" feature but a non-null namespace URI was provided, since namespaces were defined by XML.
WRONG_DOCUMENT_ERR: Raised if doctype has already been used with a different document or was created from a different implementation.
NOT_SUPPORTED_ERR: May be raised by DOM implementations which do not support the "XML" feature, if they choose not to support this method. Other features introduced in the future, by the DOM WG or in extensions defined by other groups, may also demand support for this method; please consult the definition of the feature to see if it requires this method.
Since:
DOM Level 2

virtual DOMImplementation* DOMImplementation::getInterface ( const XMLCh *  feature  )  [pure virtual]

This method makes available a DOMImplementation's specialized interface (see ).

"Experimental - subject to change"

Parameters:
feature The name of the feature requested (case-insensitive).
Returns:
Returns an alternate DOMImplementation which implements the specialized APIs of the specified feature, if any, or null if there is no alternate DOMImplementation object which implements interfaces associated with that feature. Any alternate DOMImplementation returned by this method must delegate to the primary core DOMImplementation and not return results inconsistent with the primary DOMImplementation
Since:
DOM Level 3

virtual DOMDocument* DOMImplementation::createDocument ( MemoryManager *const   manager = XMLPlatformUtils::fgMemoryManager  )  [pure virtual]

Non-standard extension.

Create a completely empty document that has neither a root element or a doctype node.

static DOMImplementation* DOMImplementation::getImplementation (  )  [static]

Non-standard extension.

Factory method for getting a DOMImplementation object. The DOM implementation retains ownership of the returned object. Application code should NOT delete it.

static bool DOMImplementation::loadDOMExceptionMsg ( const DOMException::ExceptionCode  msgToLoad,
XMLCh *const   toFill,
const unsigned int  maxChars 
) [static]

Non-standard extension.

Load the default error text message for DOMException.

Parameters:
msgToLoad The DOM ExceptionCode id to be processed
toFill The buffer that will hold the output on return. The size of this buffer should at least be 'maxChars + 1'.
maxChars The maximum number of output characters that can be accepted. If the result will not fit, it is an error.
Returns:
true if the message is successfully loaded

static bool DOMImplementation::loadDOMExceptionMsg ( const DOMRangeException::RangeExceptionCode  msgToLoad,
XMLCh *const   toFill,
const unsigned int  maxChars 
) [static]

Non-standard extension.

Load the default error text message for DOMRangeException.

Parameters:
msgToLoad The DOM RangeExceptionCode id to be processed
toFill The buffer that will hold the output on return. The size of this buffer should at least be 'maxChars + 1'.
maxChars The maximum number of output characters that can be accepted. If the result will not fit, it is an error.
Returns:
true if the message is successfully loaded
