Detailed Description

This interface represents an entity, either parsed or unparsed, in an XML document.

Note that this models the entity itself not the entity declaration. DOMEntity declaration modeling has been left for a later Level of the DOM specification.

The nodeName attribute that is inherited from DOMNode contains the name of the entity.

An XML processor may choose to completely expand entities before the structure model is passed to the DOM; in this case there will be no DOMEntityReference nodes in the document tree.

XML does not mandate that a non-validating XML processor read and process entity declarations made in the external subset or declared in external parameter entities. This means that parsed entities declared in the external subset need not be expanded by some classes of applications, and that the replacement value of the entity may not be available. When the replacement value is available, the corresponding DOMEntity node's child list represents the structure of that replacement text. Otherwise, the child list is empty.

The DOM Level 2 does not support editing DOMEntity nodes; if a user wants to make changes to the contents of an DOMEntity, every related DOMEntityReference node has to be replaced in the structure model by a clone of the DOMEntity's contents, and then the desired changes must be made to each of those clones instead. DOMEntity nodes and all their descendants are readonly.

An DOMEntity node does not have any parent.If the entity contains an unbound namespace prefix, the namespaceURI of the corresponding node in the DOMEntity node subtree is null. The same is true for DOMEntityReference nodes that refer to this entity, when they are created using the createEntityReference method of the DOMDocument interface. The DOM Level 2 does not support any mechanism to resolve namespace prefixes.

Destructor.

Member Function Documentation

virtual const XMLCh* DOMEntity::getInputEncoding ( ) const
pure virtual

An attribute specifying the encoding used for this entity at the time of parsing, when it is an external parsed entity.

This is null if it an entity from the internal subset or if it is not known.

Since
DOM Level 3
virtual const XMLCh* DOMEntity::getNotationName ( ) const
pure virtual

For unparsed entities, the name of the notation for the entity.

For parsed entities, this is null.

Since
DOM Level 1
virtual const XMLCh* DOMEntity::getPublicId ( ) const
pure virtual

The public identifier associated with the entity, if specified.

If the public identifier was not specified, this is null.

Since
DOM Level 1
virtual const XMLCh* DOMEntity::getSystemId ( ) const
pure virtual

The system identifier associated with the entity, if specified.

If the system identifier was not specified, this is null.

Since
DOM Level 1
virtual const XMLCh* DOMEntity::getXmlEncoding ( ) const
pure virtual

An attribute specifying, as part of the text declaration, the encoding of this entity, when it is an external parsed entity.

This is null otherwise.

Since
DOM Level 3
virtual const XMLCh* DOMEntity::getXmlVersion ( ) const
pure virtual

An attribute specifying, as part of the text declaration, the version number of this entity, when it is an external parsed entity.

This is null otherwise.
