The following table shows the methods for IXMLDOMProcessingInstruction.

Method

Description

appendChild

Appends newChild as the last child of this node.

cloneNode

Creates a new node that is an exact clone of this node.

hasChildNodes

Returns True if this node has children.

insertBefore

Inserts a child node to the left of the specified node or at the end of the list.

removeChild

Removes the specified child node from the list of children and returns it.

replaceChild

Replaces the specified old child node with the supplied new child node in the set of children of this node, and returns the old child node.

selectNodes*

Applies the specified pattern-matching operation to this node's context and returns the list of matching nodes.

selectSingleNode*

Applies the specified pattern-matching operation to this node's context and returns the first matching node.

transformNode*

Processes this node and its children using the supplied Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT) style sheet and returns the resulting transformation.

transformNodeToObject*

The following table shows the properties for IXMLDOMProcessingInstruction.

Property

Description

attributes

Contains the list of attributes for this node. Read-only.

baseName*

Returns the base name for the name qualified with the namespace. Read-only.

childNodes

Contains a node list containing the children (for nodes that can have children). Read-only.

data

Contains the content of the processing instruction, excluding the target. Read/write.

dataType*

Specifies the data type for this node. Read/write.

definition*

Returns the definition of the node in the document type definition (DTD) or schema. Read-only.

firstChild

Contains the first child of this node. Read-only.

lastChild

Returns the last child node. Read-only.

namespaceURI*

Returns the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) for the namespace. Read-only.

nextSibling

Contains the next sibling of this node in the parent's child list. Read-only.

nodeName

Contains the qualified name of the element, attribute, or entity reference, or a fixed string for other node types. Read-only.

nodeType

Specifies the XML Document Object Model (DOM) node type, which determines valid values and whether the node can have child nodes. Read-only.

nodeTypedValue*

Contains this node's value, expressed in its defined data type. Read/write.

nodeTypeString*

Returns the node type in string form. Read-only.

nodeValue

Contains the text associated with the node. Read/write.

ownerDocument

Returns the root of the document that contains this node. Read-only.

parentNode

Contains the parent node (for nodes that can have parents). Read-only.

parsed*

Contains True if this node and all descendants have been parsed and instantiated; False if any nodes remain to be parsed. Read-only.

prefix*

Returns the namespace prefix. Read-only.

previousSibling

Contains the left sibling of this node. Read-only.

specified*

Indicates whether the node (usually an attribute) is explicitly specified or derived from a default value in the DTD or schema. Read-only.

target

Specifies the target, the application to which this processing instruction is directed. Read-only.

text*

Contains the text content of the node and its subtrees. Read/write.

xml*

Contains the XML representation of the node and all its descendants. Read-only.

* denotes an extension to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) DOM.

None.

The content of the ProcessingInstruction node is the entire content between the delimiters of the processing instruction, <? and ?>.

The content of this node is usually subdivided into the target, which is the application that this processing instruction is directed toward, and the content of the processing instruction. The target consists of the first token following the start of the tag, signified by <?, while the content of the processing instruction refers to the text that extends from the first non-white space character after the target through the character immediately preceding the ?>, which signifies the end of the tag.

This interface inherits all of the methods, properties, and events of IXMLDOMNode.
