newChild
IXmlNode IXmlNode IXmlNode

The address of the new node to be inserted. The node passed here must be a valid child of the current XML DOM document node.

The reference node. The node specified is where the newChild node is to be inserted to the left as the preceding sibling in the child list. The node passed here must be a either a child node of the current node or null. If the value is null, the newChild node is inserted at the end of the child list. If the referenceChild node is not a child of the current node, an error is returned.

Returns

On success, the child node that was inserted. If null, no object is created.
