CDATASection

This object is available to unprivileged JavaScript. It implements the following interfaces:

Constants

short DOCUMENT_POSITION_DISCONNECTED = 1
short DOCUMENT_POSITION_PRECEDING = 2
short DOCUMENT_POSITION_FOLLOWING = 4
short DOCUMENT_POSITION_CONTAINS = 8
short DOCUMENT_POSITION_CONTAINED_BY = 16
short DOCUMENT_POSITION_IMPLEMENTATION_SPECIFIC = 32
The nsIDOMNode interface is the primary datatype for the entire Document Object Model. It represents a single node in the document tree.

void addEventListener ( String type , EventListener listener , boolean useCapture )

This method allows the registration of event listeners on the event target. If an EventListener is added to an EventTarget while it is processing an event, it will not be triggered by the current actions but may be triggered during a later stage of event flow, such as the bubbling phase.

If multiple identical EventListeners are registered on the same EventTarget with the same parameters the duplicate instances are discarded. They do not cause the EventListener to be called twice and since they are discarded they do not need to be removed with the removeEventListener method.

Arguments:
type: The event type for which the user is registering
listener: The listener parameter takes an interface implemented by the user which contains the methods to be called when the event occurs.
useCapture: If true, useCapture indicates that the user wishes to initiate capture. After initiating capture, all events of the specified type will be dispatched to the registered EventListener before being dispatched to any EventTargets beneath them in the tree. Events which are bubbling upward through the tree will not trigger an EventListener designated to use capture.

Node appendChild ( Node newChild )

Arguments:
newChild

void appendData ( String arg )

Arguments:
arg

Node cloneNode ( boolean deep )

Arguments:
deep

short compareDocumentPosition ( Node other )

Arguments:
other

void deleteData ( int offset , int count )

Arguments:
offset
count

boolean dispatchEvent ( Event evt )

This method allows the dispatch of events into the implementations event model. Events dispatched in this manner will have the same capturing and bubbling behavior as events dispatched directly by the implementation. The target of the event is the EventTarget on which dispatchEvent is called.

Arguments:
evt: Specifies the event type, behavior, and contextual information to be used in processing the event.
Returns:
Indicates whether any of the listeners which handled the event called preventDefault. If preventDefault was called the value is false, else the value is true.

nsISupports getFeature ( String feature , String version )

Arguments:
feature
version

nsIVariant getUserData ( String key )

Arguments:
key

boolean hasAttributes ( )


boolean hasChildNodes ( )


Node insertBefore ( Node newChild , Node refChild )

Arguments:
newChild
refChild

void insertData ( int offset , String arg )

Arguments:
offset
arg

boolean isDefaultNamespace ( String namespaceURI )

Arguments:
namespaceURI

boolean isEqualNode ( Node arg )

Arguments:
arg

boolean isSameNode ( Node other )

Arguments:
other

boolean isSupported ( String feature , String version )

Arguments:
feature
version

String lookupNamespaceURI ( String prefix )

Arguments:
prefix

String lookupPrefix ( String namespaceURI )

Arguments:
namespaceURI

void normalize ( )


Node removeChild ( Node oldChild )

Arguments:
oldChild

void removeEventListener ( String type , EventListener listener , boolean useCapture )

This method allows the removal of event listeners from the event target. If an EventListener is removed from an EventTarget while it is processing an event, it will not be triggered by the current actions. EventListeners can never be invoked after being removed. Calling removeEventListener with arguments which do not identify any currently registered EventListener on the EventTarget has no effect.

Arguments:
type: Specifies the event type of the EventListener being removed.
listener: The EventListener parameter indicates the EventListener to be removed.
useCapture: Specifies whether the EventListener being removed was registered as a capturing listener or not. If a listener was registered twice, one with capture and one without, each must be removed separately. Removal of a capturing listener does not affect a non-capturing version of the same listener, and vice versa.

Node replaceChild ( Node newChild , Node oldChild )

Arguments:
newChild
oldChild

void replaceData ( int offset , int count , String arg )

Arguments:
offset
count
arg

nsIVariant setUserData ( String key , nsIVariant data , nsIDOMUserDataHandler handler )

Arguments:
key
data
handler

Text splitText ( int offset )

The nsIDOMText interface inherits from nsIDOMCharacterData and represents the textual content (termed character data in XML) of an Element or Attr.

For more information on this interface please see http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-2-Core/

Arguments:
offset

String substringData ( int offset , int count )

Arguments:
offset
count
