Node Methods

The Node type exposes the following members.

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
Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize
Finalizes an instance of the Node class.
(Overrides ObjectFinalize.)
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as a hash function for a particular type.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetPlatformType
This method is used to retrieve ECMAScript object Type.
(Inherited from DOMObject.)
Public methodGetType
Gets the type of the current instance.
(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
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.
(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.)
