ownerDocument Property

Returns the root of the document that contains the node.

var objXMLDOMDocument = oXMLDOMNode.ownerDocument;


The following script example uses the ownerDocument property to return the parent DOMDocument object, and then displays that object's root element tag name.

var xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.3.0");
var currNode;
var owner;
xmlDoc.async = false;
if (xmlDoc.parseError.errorCode != 0) {
   var myErr = xmlDoc.parseError;
   WScript.Echo("You have error " + myErr.reason);
} else {
   currNode =    xmlDoc.documentElement.childNodes.item(0).childNodes.item(1);
   owner = currNode.ownerDocument;

Set objXMLDOMDocument = oXMLDOMNode.ownerDocument

HRESULT get_ownerDocument(
    IXMLDOMDocument **DOMDocument);


DOMDocument[out, retval]

Address of the parent document object that represents the root of the document.

C/C++ Return Values


Value returned if successful.


Value returned if the DOMDocument parameter is Null.

The property is read-only. It returns the parent document that represents the root of the document to which this node belongs.

All nodes are created in the context of a document, and the ownerDocument property is maintained until the node is added to another document. For a node removed from a document, this property indicates the document in which the node was last included.

Implemented in:

MSXML 3.0, MSXML 6.0
