innerXML

Why isn't there a way in standard DOM to access all XML of a node?
(Similar to what outerHTML and innerHTML can do on Firefox or Internet
Explorer when accessing HTML.)
Or am I missing something?

Well outerXml, that is the serialization of the node itself can
certainly be achieved with W3C DOM Level 3 Load and Save e.g. with Opera
7.60 Preview you can do

function getOuterXml (node) {
if (node.ownerDocu ment && node.ownerDocum ent.implementat ion &&
document.implem entation.create LSSerializer &&
(serializer =
node.ownerDocum ent.implementat ion.createLSSer ializer()))
{
return serializer.writ eToString(node) ;
}
}

getOuterXml(som eNode)

I think Java 1.5 (also named Java 5.0) also implements DOM Level 3 Load
and Save so there you are also able to serialize a node with standard
DOM ways:
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/index.html

And innerXml only requires you to serialize all child nodes and
concatenate the results.

I did that once in Visual Basic. Of course it takes some efforts, and I
wonder, really wonder -- and I'm not the only one, my colleagues wonder
as well :) -- why this is not in the basic DOM (innerXML and outerXML).

I'm using PHP5. Any code samples are very welcome. Both Outer and
InnerXML would be great.

According to the docs all you need for "OuterXml" is
xmlDocument->saveXML(node )
as documented here
http://www.php.net/manual/en/functio...nt-savexml.php
For "InnerXml" you would then need to concatenate the OuterXml of all
child nodes:
function getInnerXml ($node) {
$innerXml = '';
$xmlDoc = $node->ownerDocumen t;
for ($i = 0; $i < $node->childNodes->length; $i++) {
$innerXml .= $xmlDoc->saveXML($nod e->childNodes[$i]);
}
return $innerXml;
}

All untested as I currently here do not have PHP 5 installed.

Thanks a lot Martin, that'll do! I will try "saveXML".

Works like a charm.

The square bracket access to childNodes doesn't work so you need

function getInnerXml ($node) {
$innerXml = '';
$xmlDoc = $node->ownerDocumen t;
for ($i = 0; $i < $node->childNodes->length; $i++) {
$innerXml .= $xmlDoc->saveXML($nod e->childNodes->item($i));
}
return $innerXml;
}

but then it works fine.

Selecting element nodes from a xmlDataDocument using the childNodes collection or by using selectSingleNode and then reading innerXml or outerXml leaks cpu-resources.

Hi... I just noticed something that seems counter-intuitive to me. By default an XmlDocument is set with PreserveWhitespace=false. This means that XmlDocument.Load() or .LoadXml() will strip/condense non-semantic whitespace. *But* I just found that if you take that self-same XmlDocument and do either XmlDocumentFragment node = doc.CreateDocumentFragment(); node.InnerXml = "<foo/>\r\n<bar/>";
