Methods

Name Description
AddEventListener(string, IEventListener) The addEventListener() method of the EventTarget interface sets up a function that will be called whenever the specified event is delivered to the target.
AddEventListener(string, DOMEventHandler, bool) The addEventListener() method of the EventTarget interface sets up a function that will be called whenever the specified event is delivered to the target.
AddEventListener(string, IEventListener, bool) The addEventListener() method of the EventTarget interface sets up a function that will be called whenever the specified event is delivered to the target.
AppendChild(Node) The appendChild() method of the Node interface adds a node to the end of the list of children of a specified parent node. If the given child is a reference to an existing node in the document, appendChild() moves it from its current position to the new position (there is no requirement to remove the node from its parent node before appending it to some other node).
AttachShadow(ShadowRootMode) Creates shadow root and attaches it to current element.
Blur() Removes keyboard focus from this element.
CloneNode() The cloneNode() method of the Node interface returns a duplicate of the node on which this method was called. Its parameter controls if the subtree contained in a node is also cloned or not.
CloneNode(bool) The cloneNode() method of the Node interface returns a duplicate of the node on which this method was called. Its parameter controls if the subtree contained in a node is also cloned or not.
DispatchEvent(Event) Dispatches an Event at the specified EventTarget, (synchronously) invoking the affected EventListeners in the appropriate order. The normal event processing rules (including the capturing and optional bubbling phase) also apply to events dispatched manually with dispatchEvent().
Dispose() Performs application-defined tasks associated with freeing, releasing, or resetting unmanaged resources.
Focus() Gives keyboard focus to this element.
GetAttribute(string) Retrieves an attribute value by name.
GetAttributeNode(string) Retrieves an attribute node by name.
GetAttributeNodeNS(string, string) Retrieves an Attr node by local name and namespace URI.
GetAttributeNS(string, string) Retrieves an attribute value by local name and namespace URI.
GetElementsByClassName(string) Returns HTMLCollection object containing all the elements within element that have all the classes specified in argument.
GetElementsByTagName(string) Returns HTMLCollection object containing all elements with a given tag name, in document order.
GetElementsByTagNameNS(string, string) Returns HTMLCollection object containing all elements with a given local name and namespace URI string in document order.
virtual GetPlatformType() This method is used to retrieve the ECMAScript object .
HasAttribute(string) Returns true when an attribute with a given name is specified on this element or has a default value, false otherwise.
HasAttributeNS(string, string) Returns true when an attribute with a given local name and namespace URI is specified on this element or has a default value, false otherwise.
override HasAttributes() Returns whether this node (if it is an element) has any attributes
HasChildNodes() The hasChildNodes() method of the Node interface returns a boolean value indicating whether the given Node has child nodes or not.
InsertBefore(Node, Node) The insertBefore() method of the Node interface inserts a node before a reference node as a child of a specified parent node.
IsDefaultNamespace(string) The isDefaultNamespace() method of the Node interface accepts a namespace URI as an argument. It returns a boolean value that is true if the namespace is the default namespace on the given node and false if not.
IsEqualNode(Node) The isEqualNode() method of the Node interface tests whether two nodes are equal. Two nodes are equal when they have the same type, defining characteristics (for elements, this would be their ID, number of children, and so forth), its attributes match, and so on. The specific set of data points that must match varies depending on the types of the nodes.
IsSameNode(Node) The isSameNode() method of the Node interface is a legacy alias the for the === strict equality operator. That is, it tests whether two nodes are the same (in other words, whether they reference the same object).
LookupNamespaceURI(string) The lookupNamespaceURI() method of the Node interface takes a prefix as parameter and returns the namespace URI associated with it on the given node if found (and null if not).
LookupPrefix(string) The lookupPrefix() method of the Node interface returns a String containing the prefix for a given namespace URI, if present, and null if not. When multiple prefixes are possible, the first prefix is returned.
Normalize() Puts all Text nodes in the full depth of the sub-tree underneath this Node, including attribute nodes, into a “normal” form where only structure (e.g., elements, comments, processing instructions, CDATA sections, and entity references) separates Text nodes, i.e., there are neither adjacent Text nodes nor empty Text nodes. This can be used to ensure that the DOM view of a document is the same as if it were saved and re-loaded, and is useful when operations (such as XPointer [XPointer] lookups) that depend on a particular document tree structure are to be used. If the parameter “normalize-characters” of the DOMConfiguration object attached to the Node.ownerDocument is true, this method will also fully normalize the characters of the Text nodes.
QuerySelector(string) Returns the first Element in document, which match selector
QuerySelectorAll(string) Returns a NodeList of all the Elements in document, which match selector
Remove() Removes this instance.
RemoveAttribute(string) Removes an attribute by name.
RemoveAttributeNode(Attr) Removes the specified attribute node.
RemoveAttributeNS(string, string) Removes an attribute by local name and namespace URI.
RemoveChild(Node) The removeChild() method of the Node interface removes a child node from the DOM and returns the removed node.
RemoveEventListener(string, IEventListener) This method allows the removal of event listeners from the event target. If an is removed from an while it is processing an event, it will not be triggered by the current actions. Event Listeners can never be invoked after being removed.
RemoveEventListener(string, DOMEventHandler, bool) This method allows the removal of event listeners from the event target. If an is removed from an while it is processing an event, it will not be triggered by the current actions. Event Listeners can never be invoked after being removed.
RemoveEventListener(string, IEventListener, bool) This method allows the removal of event listeners from the event target. If an is removed from an while it is processing an event, it will not be triggered by the current actions. Event Listeners can never be invoked after being removed.
ReplaceChild(Node, Node) Replaces the child node oldChild with newChild in the list of children, and returns the oldChild node. If newChild is a DocumentFragment object, oldChild is replaced by all of the DocumentFragment children, which are inserted in the same order. If the newChild is already in the tree, it is first removed.
SetAttribute(string, string) Adds a new attribute. If an attribute with that name is already present in the element, its value is changed to be that of the value parameter
SetAttributeNode(Attr) Adds a new attribute node. If an attribute with that name (nodeName) is already present in the element, it is replaced by the new one.
SetAttributeNodeNS(Attr) Adds a new attribute. If an attribute with that local name and that namespace URI is already present in the element, it is replaced by the new one.
SetAttributeNS(string, string, string) Adds a new attribute. If an attribute with the same local name and namespace URI is already present on the element, its prefix is changed to be the prefix part of the qualifiedName, and its value is changed to be the value parameter.
SetIdAttribute(string, bool) If the parameter isId is true, this method declares the specified attribute to be a user-determined ID attribute.
SetIdAttributeNode(Attr, bool) If the parameter isId is true, this method declares the specified attribute to be a user-determined ID attribute.
SetIdAttributeNS(string, string, bool) If the parameter isId is true, this method declares the specified attribute to be a user-determined ID attribute.
