Detailed Description

The DOMXPathResult interface represents the result of the evaluation of an XPath 1.0 or XPath 2.0 expression within the context of a particular node.

Since evaluation of an XPath expression can result in various result types, this object makes it possible to discover and manipulate the type and value of the result.

Note that some function signatures were changed compared to the DOM Level 3 in order to accommodate XPath 2.0.

Member Enumeration Documentation

ANY_TYPE
[XPath 1.0] This code does not represent a specific type. An evaluation of an XPath expression will never produce this type. If this type is requested, then the evaluation returns whatever type naturally results from evaluation of the expression. If the natural result is a node set when ANY_TYPE was requested, then UNORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE is always the resulting type. Any other representation of a node set must be explicitly requested.

ANY_UNORDERED_NODE_TYPE
[XPath 1.0] The result is a node set as defined by XPath 1.0 and will be accessed as a single node, which may be null if the node set is empty. Document modification does not invalidate the node, but may mean that the result node no longer corresponds to the current document. This is a convenience that permits optimization since the implementation can stop once any node in the resulting set has been found. If there is more than one node in the actual result, the single node returned might not be the first in document order.

BOOLEAN_TYPE
[XPath 1.0] The result is a boolean as defined by XPath 1.0. Document modification does not invalidate the boolean, but may mean that reevaluation would not yield the same boolean.

FIRST_ORDERED_NODE_TYPE
[XPath 1.0] The result is a node set as defined by XPath 1.0 and will be accessed as a single node, which may be null if the node set is empty. Document modification does not invalidate the node, but may mean that the result node no longer corresponds to the current document. This is a convenience that permits optimization since the implementation can stop once the first node in document order of the resulting set has been found. If there are more than one node in the actual result, the single node returned will be the first in document order.

NUMBER_TYPE
[XPath 1.0] The result is a number as defined by XPath 1.0. Document modification does not invalidate the number, but may mean that reevaluation would not yield the same number.

ORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE
[XPath 1.0] The result is a node set as defined by XPath 1.0 that will be accessed iteratively, which will produce document-ordered nodes. Document modification invalidates the iteration.

ORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE
[XPath 1.0] The result is a node set as defined by XPath 1.0 that will be accessed as a snapshot list of nodes that will be in original document order. Document modification does not invalidate the snapshot but may mean that reevaluation would not yield the same snapshot and nodes in the snapshot may have been altered, moved, or removed from the document.

STRING_TYPE
[XPath 1.0] The result is a string as defined by XPath 1.0. Document modification does not invalidate the string, but may mean that the string no longer corresponds to the current document.

UNORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE
[XPath 1.0] The result is a node set as defined by XPath 1.0 that will be accessed iteratively, which may not produce nodes in a particular order. Document modification invalidates the iteration. This is the default type returned if the result is a node set and ANY_TYPE is requested.

UNORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE
[XPath 1.0] The result is a node set as defined by XPath 1.0 that will be accessed as a snapshot list of nodes that may not be in a particular order. Document modification does not invalidate the snapshot but may mean that reevaluation would not yield the same snapshot and nodes in the snapshot may have been altered, moved, or removed from the document.

FIRST_RESULT_TYPE
[XPath 2.0] The result is a sequence as defined by XPath 2.0 and will be accessed as a single current value or there will be no current value if the sequence is empty. Document modification does not invalidate the value, but may mean that the result no longer corresponds to the current document. This is a convenience that permits optimization since the implementation can stop once the first item in the resulting sequence has been found. If there is more than one item in the actual result, the single item returned might not be the first in document order.

ITERATOR_RESULT_TYPE
[XPath 2.0] The result is a sequence as defined by XPath 2.0 that will be accessed iteratively. Document modification invalidates the iteration.

SNAPSHOT_RESULT_TYPE
[XPath 2.0] The result is a sequence as defined by XPath 2.0 that will be accessed as a snapshot list of values. Document modification does not invalidate the snapshot but may mean that reevaluation would not yield the same snapshot and any items in the snapshot may have been altered, moved, or removed from the document.

Member Function Documentation

virtual bool DOMXPathResult::getBooleanValue ( ) const
pure virtual

Returns the boolean value of this result.

Returns
booleanValue of type boolean The value of this boolean result.
Exceptions
DOMXPathExceptionTYPE_ERR: raised if ResultType is not BOOLEAN_TYPE (XPath 1.0) or if current result cannot be properly converted to boolean (XPath 2.0).
NO_RESULT_ERROR: raised if there is no current result in the result object (XPath 2.0).
virtual int DOMXPathResult::getIntegerValue ( ) const
pure virtual

Returns the integer value of this result (XPath 2 only).

Returns
integerValue of type int The value of this integer result.
Exceptions
DOMXPathExceptionTYPE_ERR: raised if current result cannot be properly converted to int (XPath 2.0).
NO_RESULT_ERROR: raised if there is no current result in the result object (XPath 2.0).
virtual bool DOMXPathResult::getInvalidIteratorState ( ) const
pure virtual

Signifies that the iterator has become invalid.

Returns
invalidIteratorState True if ResultType is UNORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE or ORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE (XPath 1.0) or ITERATOR_RESULT_TYPE (XPath 2.0) and the document has been modified since this result was returned.
Exceptions
XPathExceptionTYPE_ERR: raised if ResultType is not UNORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE or ORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE (XPath 1.0) or if ResultType is not ITERATOR_RESULT_TYPE (XPath 2.0).
virtual DOMNode* DOMXPathResult::getNodeValue ( ) const
pure virtual

Returns the node value of this result.

Returns
nodeValue The value of this node result, which may be null.
Exceptions
DOMXPathExceptionTYPE_ERR: raised if ResultType is not ANY_UNORDERED_NODE_TYPE, FIRST_ORDERED_NODE_TYPE, UNORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE, ORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE, UNORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE, or ORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE (XPath 1.0) or if current result is not a node (XPath 2.0).

virtual ResultType DOMXPathResult::getResultType ( ) const
pure virtual

Returns the result type of this result.

Returns
ResultType A code representing the type of this result, as defined by the type constants.
virtual XMLSize_t DOMXPathResult::getSnapshotLength ( ) const

pure virtual

Returns true if the result has a current result and the value is a node (XPath 2 only).

This function is necessary to distinguish between a string value and a node of type string as returned by the getTypeInfo() function.

Returns
isNode of type boolean, readonly
virtual bool DOMXPathResult::iterateNext ( )
pure virtual

Iterates and returns true if the current result is the next item from the sequence or false if there are no more items.

Returns
boolean True if the current result is the next item from the sequence or false if there are no more items.
Exceptions
XPathExceptionTYPE_ERR: raised if ResultType is not UNORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE or ORDERED_NODE_ITERATOR_TYPE (XPath 1.0) or if ResultType is not ITERATOR_RESULT_TYPE (XPath 2.0).

Access to a released object will lead to unexpected result.

virtual bool DOMXPathResult::snapshotItem ( XMLSize_t  index)
pure virtual

Sets the current result to the indexth item in the snapshot collection.

If index is greater than or equal to the number of items in the list, this method returns false. Unlike the iterator result, the snapshot does not become invalid, but may not correspond to the current document if it is mutated.

Parameters
indexof type XMLSize_t - Index into the snapshot collection.
Returns
boolean True if the current result is the next item from the sequence or false if there are no more items.
Exceptions
XPathExceptionTYPE_ERR: raised if ResultType is not UNORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE or ORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE (XPath 1.0) or if ResultType is not SNAPSHOT_RESULT_TYPE (XPath 2.0).
