transformNode Method

 

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

strValue = oXMLDOMNode.transformNode(objStylesheet);  

Parameters

objstylesheet
An object. A valid XML document or DOM node that consists of XSLT elements that direct the transformation of this node.

Return Value

A string. Returns a string that contains the product of the transformation of this XML document based on the XSLT style sheet.

Example

The following Microsoft JScript example shows the result of transformNode.

You can use books.xml and sample2.xml (below) to run this sample code.

// Load data.
var source = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.3.0");
source.async = false;
source.load("books.xml");
if (source.parseError.errorCode != 0) {
   var myErr = source.parseError;
   WScript.Echo("You have error " + myErr.reason);
} else {
   // Load style sheet.
   var stylesheet = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.3.0");
   stylesheet.async = false
   stylesheet.load("sample.xsl");
   if (stylesheet.parseError.errorCode != 0) {
      var myErr = stylesheet.parseError;
      WScript.Echo("You have error " + myErr.reason);
    } else {
      // Echo back XSLT output to console
      WScript.Echo(source.transformNode(stylesheet));
   }
}

strValue = oXMLDOMNode.transformNode(objStylesheet)  

Parameters

objstylesheet
An object. A valid XML document or DOM node that consists of XSLT elements that direct the transformation of this node.

Return Value

A string. Returns a string that contains the product of the transformation of this XML document based on the XSLT style sheet.

Example

The following Microsoft Visual Basic example displays the result of transformNode.

Dim source As New Msxml2.DOMDocument30  
Dim stylesheet As New Msxml2.DOMDocument30  
  
' Load data.  
source.async = False  
source.Load App.Path & "\books.xml"  
If (source.parseError.errorCode <> 0) Then  
   Dim myErr  
   Set myErr = source.parseError  
   MsgBox("You have error " & myErr.reason)  
Else  
   ' Load style sheet.  
   stylesheet.async = False  
   stylesheet.Load App.Path & "\sample.xsl"  
   If (stylesheet.parseError.errorCode <> 0) Then  
      Dim myErr  
      Set myErr = stylesheet.parseError  
      MsgBox("You have error " & myErr.reason)  
   Else  
      ' Do the transform.  
      MsgBox source.transformNode(stylesheet)  
   End If  
End If  

HRESULT transformNode(  
    IXMLDOMNode *stylesheet,  
    BSTR *xmlString);  

Parameters

stylesheet[in]
A valid XML document or DOM node that consists of XSLT elements that direct the transformation of this node.

xmlString[out, retval]
A string that contains the product of the transformation of this XML document based on the XSLT style sheet.

Return Values

S_OK
The value returned if successful.

E_INVALIDARG
The value returned if the stylesheet or xmlString parameter is Null.

The stylesheet parameter must be either a DOMDocument node, in which case the document is assumed to be an Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) style sheet, or a Document Object Model (DOM) node in the XSL style sheet, in which case this node is treated as a standalone style sheet fragment.

The source node defines a context in which the style sheet operates, but navigation outside this scope is allowed. For example, a style sheet can use the id function to access other parts of the document.

This method supports both standalone and embedded style sheets and also provides the ability to run a localized style sheet fragment against a particular source node.

This member is an extension of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) DOM.
