lastChild Property

Returns the last child node.

var objXMLDOMNode = oXMLDOMNode.lastChild;

Example

The following script example creates a new IXMLDOMNode (element) object, and then inserts it before the last child of the top-level node.

var xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.3.0");
var root;
var newNode;
var currNode;
xmlDoc.async = false;
xmlDoc.load("books.xml");
if (xmlDoc.parseError.errorCode != 0) {
   var myErr = xmlDoc.parseError;
   WScript.Echo("You have error " + myErr.reason);
} else {
   var root = xmlDoc.documentElement;
   WScript.Echo(root.xml);
   var newNode = xmlDoc.createNode(1, "VIDEOS", "");
   currNode = root.insertBefore(newNode, root.lastChild);
   WScript.Echo(root.xml);
}
