parsed Property


Indicates the parsed status of the node and child nodes.

Script Syntax

boolValue = oXMLDOMNode.parsed;  


The following script example displays whether or not the top-level node (root) and all its descendants are parsed.

var xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.3.0");
var root;
xmlDoc.async = true;
if (xmlDoc.parseError.errorCode != 0) {
   var myErr = xmlDoc.parseError;
   WScript.Echo("You have error " + myErr.reason);
} else {
   root = xmlDoc.documentElement;
   WScript.Echo(root.parsed ? "true" : "false");

Visual Basic Syntax

boolValue = oXMLDOMNode.parsed  

C/C++ Syntax

HRESULT parsed(  
    VARIANT_BOOL *isParsed);  


isParsed[out, retval]
True if this node and all descendants have been parsed; False if any descendants remain to be parsed.

C/C++ Return Values

The value returned if successful.

The value returned if the isParsed parameter is Null.


Boolean. The property is read-only. During asynchronous access, not all of the document tree may be available. Before performing some operations, such as XSLT or pattern-matching operations, it is useful to know whether the entire tree below this node is available for processing.
