This collection is read-only.Each XMLChildNodeSuggestion object in an XMLChildNodeSuggestions collection is an item in the list of allowed possible XML elements at the bottom of the XML Structure task pane.

Use the Item method to return an individual XMLChildNodeSuggestion object. Use the ChildNodeSuggestions property of the Document object to access the XMLChildNodeSuggestions collection that represents the root elements of any attached schemas. Use the ChildNodeSuggestion property of the XMLNode object to access the XMLChildNodeSuggestions collection for a specific element in a document. Use the Insert method to insert at the insertion point position the XML element associated with an XMLChildNodeSuggestion object.

The following example loops through the suggestions for the first element selected in the active document and inserts all allowed elements at the insertion point postion.

Dim objNode As XMLNode 
Set objNode = Selection.XMLNodes.Item(1)
