nextSibling Property1

 

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

var objXMLDOMNode = oXMLDOMNode.nextSibling;

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

var xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.3.0");
var currNode;
var nextNode;
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(0);
   nextNode = currNode.nextSibling;
   WScript.Echo(nextNode.xml);
}

Set objXMLDOMNode = oXMLDOMNode.nextSibling

HRESULT get_nextSibling(
    IXMLDOMNode **nextSibling);
