previousSibling Property1

 

Contains the previous sibling of the node in the parent's child list.

var objXMLDOMNode = oXMLDOMNode.previousSibling;  

Example

The following script example creates an IXMLDOMNode object and sets it to the previous sibling of the current node.

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

Set objXMLDOMNode = oXMLDOMNode.previousSibling  

HRESULT get_previousSibling(  
    IXMLDOMNode **previousSibling);  

Parameters

The left sibling of this node.
