ProcessingInstruction Properties

The ProcessingInstruction type exposes the following members.

Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyAttributes

The attributes property returns a live collection of all attribute nodes registered to the specified node. Attributes is a key/value pair of strings that represents any information regarding that attribute.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public propertyBaseURI

The read-only baseURI property of the Node interface returns the absolute base URL of the document containing the node.

The base URL is used to resolve relative URLs when the browser needs to obtain an absolute URL, for example when processing the HTML img element's src attribute or the xlink:href or href attributes in SVG.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public propertyChildNodes

The read-only childNodes property of the Node interface returns a live NodeList of child nodes of the given element where the first child node is assigned index 0. Child nodes include elements, text and comments.

Note: The NodeList being live means that its content is changed each time new children are added or removed.
(Inherited from Node.)
Public propertyData
The character data of the node that implements this interface.
(Inherited from CharacterData.)
Public propertyFirstChild

The read-only firstChild property of the Node interface returns the node's first child in the tree, or null if the node has no children.

If the node is a Document, this property returns the first node in the list of its direct children.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public propertyLastChild

The read-only lastChild property of the Node interface returns the last child of the node. If its parent is an element, then the child is generally an element node, a text node, or a comment node. It returns null if there are no child elements

(Inherited from Node.)
Public propertyLength
The number of 16-bit units that are available through data and the substringData method below. This may have the value zero, i.e., CharacterData nodes may be empty.
(Inherited from CharacterData.)
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.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public propertyNamespaceURI

The Element.namespaceURI read-only property returns the namespace URI of the element, or null if the element is not in a namespace.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public propertyNextSibling

The read-only nextSibling property of the Node interface returns the node immediately following the specified one in their parent's childNodes, or returns null if the specified node is the last child in the parent element.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public propertyNodeName
The name of this node, depending on its type.
(Overrides NodeNodeName.)
Public propertyNodeType
A code representing the type of the underlying object.
(Overrides NodeNodeType.)
Public propertyNodeValue
The value of this node, depending on its type.
(Overrides NodeNodeValue.)
Public propertyOwnerDocument

The read-only ownerDocument property of the Node interface returns the top-level document object of the node.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public propertyParentElement

The read-only parentElement property of Node interface returns the DOM node's parent Element, or null if the node either has no parent, or its parent isn't a DOM Element.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public propertyParentNode

The read-only parentNode property of the Node interface returns the parent of the specified node in the DOM tree.

Document and DocumentFragment nodes can never have a parent, so parentNode will always return null. It also returns null if the node has just been created and is not yet attached to the tree.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public propertyPrefix

The prefix read-only property returns the namespace prefix of the specified element, or null if no prefix is specified.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public propertyPreviousSibling

The read-only previousSibling property of the Node interface returns the node immediately preceding the specified one in its parent's childNodes list, or null if the specified node is the first in that list.

(Inherited from Node.)
Public propertyTarget
The target of this processing instruction.
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.
(Overrides NodeTextContent.)
