Node Properties

In the XML DOM, each node is an object.

Objects have methods and properties, that can be accessed and manipulated by JavaScript.

Three important node properties are:

  • nodeName
  • nodeValue
  • nodeType

The nodeName Property

The nodeName property specifies the name of a node.

  • nodeName is read-only
  • nodeName of an element node is the same as the tag name
  • nodeName of an attribute node is the attribute name
  • nodeName of a text node is always #text
  • nodeName of the document node is always #document

The nodeValue Property

The nodeValue property specifies the value of a node.

  • nodeValue for element nodes is undefined
  • nodeValue for text nodes is the text itself
  • nodeValue for attribute nodes is the attribute value
