nextSibling Contains the next sibling of this node in the parent's child list. Read-only.
nodeName Contains the qualified name of the element, attribute, or entity reference, or a fixed string for other node types. Read-only.
nodeType Specifies the XML DOM node type, which determines valid values and whether the node can have child nodes. Read-only.
nodeTypeString* Contains the node type in string form. Read-only.
nodeValue Contains the text associated with the node. Read/write.
ownerDocument Returns the root of the document that contains this node. Read-only.
parentNode Contains the parent node (for nodes that can have parents). Read-only.
previousSibling Contains the left sibling of this node. Read-only.

  • Note   For detailed information about using the C++ programming language to access the IXMLDOMNode object, see the IXMLDOMNode interface.

Example Code

The following example creates an IXMLDOMNode object and displays the node name for that node.

Imports interop_msxml
Imports Microsoft.WindowsMediaServices.Interop

On Error GoTo Err

' Declare variables.
Dim Server As New WMSServerClass()
Dim Playlist As IXMLDOMDocument
Dim Node As IXMLDOMNode

' Create a new playlist object.
Set Playlist = Server.CreatePlaylist

' Load a sample playlist file.
Playlist.Load ("file://c:\wmpub\wmroot\simple.wsx")

' Retrieve the first node and display the node name.
Set Node = Playlist.documentElement.childNodes.Item(0)
MsgBox Node.nodeName
Exit Sub

' TODO: Handle errors.
