Node Class
The Node interface is the primary datatype for the entire Document object Model. It represents a single node in the document tree.

Syntax
public abstract class Node : EventTarget, 
	IXPathNSResolver

The Node type exposes the following members.

Constructors
  NameDescription
Protected methodNode
Initializes a new instance of the Node class.
Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyAttributes
A NamedNodeMap containing the attributes of this node (if it is an Element) or null otherwise.
Public propertyBaseURI
The absolute base URI of this node or null if the implementation wasn't able to obtain an absolute URI.
Public propertyChildNodes
A NodeList that contains all children of this node. If there are no children, this is a NodeList containing no nodes..
Public propertyFirstChild
The first child of this node. If there is no such node, this returns null.
Public propertyLastChild
The last child of this node. If there is no such node, this returns null.
Public propertyLocalName
Returns the local part of the qualified name of this node. For nodes of any type other than ELEMENT_NODE and ATTRIBUTE_NODE and nodes created with a DOM Level 1 method, such as Document.createElement(), this is always null.
Public propertyNamespaceURI
The namespace URI of this node, or null if it is unspecified.
Public propertyNextSibling
The node immediately following this node. If there is no such node, this returns null.
Public propertyNodeName
The name of this node, depending on its type.
Public propertyNodeType
A code representing the type of the underlying object.
Public propertyNodeValue
The value of this node, depending on its type.
Public propertyOwnerDocument
The Document object associated with this node. This is also the Document object used to create new nodes. When this node is a Document or a DocumentType which is not used with any Document yet, this is null.
Public propertyParentElement
Gets the parent Element of this node.
Public propertyParentNode
The parent of this node. All nodes, except Attr, Document, DocumentFragment, Entity, and Notation may have a parent. However, if a node has just been created and not yet added to the tree, or if it has been removed from the tree, this is null.
Public propertyPrefix
The namespace prefix of this node, or null if it is unspecified. When it is defined to be null, setting it has no effect
Public propertyPreviousSibling
The node immediately preceding this node. If there is no such node, this returns null.
Public propertyTextContent
This attribute returns the text content of this node and its descendants. When it is defined to be null, setting it has no effect. On setting, any possible children this node may have are removed and, if it the new string is not empty or null, replaced by a single Text node containing the string this attribute is set to.
Methods
  NameDescription
Public methodAddEventListener(String, IEventListener)
This method allows the registration of event listeners on the event target.
(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Public methodAddEventListener(String, DOMEventHandler, Boolean)
This method allows the registration of event listeners on the event target.
(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Public methodAddEventListener(String, IEventListener, Boolean)
This method allows the registration of event listeners on the event target.
(Inherited from EventTarget.)
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.
Public methodCloneNode
Returns a duplicate of this node, i.e., serves as a generic copy constructor for nodes. The duplicate node has no parent (parentNode is null) and no user data.
Public methodCloneNode(Boolean)
Returns a duplicate of this node, i.e., serves as a generic copy constructor for nodes. The duplicate node has no parent (parentNode is null) and no user data.
Public methodDispatchEvent
This method allows the dispatch of events into the implementations event model.
(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Public methodDispose
Performs application-defined tasks associated with freeing, releasing, or resetting unmanaged resources.
(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Protected methodDispose(Boolean)
Releases unmanaged and - optionally - managed resources.
(Overrides EventTargetDispose(Boolean).)
Public methodEquals (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize
Finalizes an instance of the Node class.
(Overrides ObjectFinalize.)
Public methodGetHashCode (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetType (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodHasAttributes
Returns whether this node (if it is an element) has any attributes
Public methodHasChildNodes
Returns whether this node has any children.
Public methodInsertBefore
Inserts the node before the existing child node child. If child is null, insert node at the end of the list of children. If child is a DocumentFragment object, all of its children are inserted, in the same order, before child. If the child is already in the tree, it is first removed.
Public methodIsDefaultNamespace
This method checks if the specified namespaceURI is the default namespace or not.
Public methodIsEqualNode
Tests whether two nodes are equal. This method tests for equality of nodes, not sameness (i.e., whether the two nodes are references to the same object) which can be tested with Node.isSameNode(). All nodes that are the same will also be equal, though the reverse may not be true.
Public methodIsSameNode
Returns whether this node is the same node as the given one. This method provides a way to determine whether two Node references returned by the implementation reference the same object. When two Node references are references to the same object, even if through a proxy, the references may be used completely interchangeably, such that all attributes have the same values and calling the same DOM method on either reference always has exactly the same effect.
Public methodLookupNamespaceURI
Look up the namespace URI associated to the given prefix, starting from this node.
Public methodLookupPrefix
Look up the prefix associated to the given namespace URI, starting from this node. The default namespace declarations are ignored by this method. See Namespace Prefix Lookup for details on the algorithm used by this method.
Protected methodMemberwiseClone (Inherited from Object.)
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 [XPointer] lookups) that depend on a particular document tree structure are to be used. If the parameter "normalize-characters" of the DOMConfiguration object attached to the Node.ownerDocument is true, this method will also fully normalize the characters of the Text nodes.
Public methodRemoveChild
Removes the child node indicated by oldChild from the list of children, and returns it.
Public methodRemoveEventListener(String, IEventListener)
This method allows the removal of event listeners from the event target. If an IEventListener is removed from an EventTarget while it is processing an event, it will not be triggered by the current actions. Event Listeners can never be invoked after being removed.
(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Public methodRemoveEventListener(String, DOMEventHandler, Boolean)
This method allows the removal of event listeners from the event target. If an IEventListener is removed from an EventTarget while it is processing an event, it will not be triggered by the current actions. Event Listeners can never be invoked after being removed.
(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Public methodRemoveEventListener(String, IEventListener, Boolean)
This method allows the removal of event listeners from the event target. If an IEventListener is removed from an EventTarget while it is processing an event, it will not be triggered by the current actions. Event Listeners can never be invoked after being removed.
(Inherited from EventTarget.)
Public methodReplaceChild
Replaces the child node oldChild with newChild in the list of children, and returns the oldChild node. If newChild is a DocumentFragment object, oldChild is replaced by all of the DocumentFragment children, which are inserted in the same order. If the newChild is already in the tree, it is first removed.
Public methodToString
Returns a String that represents this instance.
(Overrides ObjectToString.)
