Returns the node that matches the ID attribute.
var objXMLDOMNode = oXMLDOMDocument.nodeFromID(idString);
The string containing the value of the ID to match.
An object. Returns the node that matches the supplied ID. If no nodes match, returns Null.
HRESULT nodeFromID( BSTR idString, IXMLDOMNode **node);
The value of the ID to match.
The node that matches the supplied ID. If no nodes match, this method returns Null.
The value returned if successful.
The value returned when there is no node with the given ID.
The value returned if the
node parameter is Null.
According to the XML 1.0 Recommendation (REC-xml-19980210), ID attribute values must be unique within their XML documents and no element can specify more than one ID attribute.
nodeFromID method was designed to handle ID and IDREF relationships in XML, but does not require an attribute of type IDREF. It can be used generically, and is similar to the
all collection in DHTML.
To reference a node with
nodefromID, the node must be typed as ID in the schema or document type definition (DTD). Simply naming an attribute "
ID" does not set its data type.
