Node.isDefaultNamespace Redirect 1


isDefaultNamespace accepts a namespace URI as an argument and returns true if the namespace is the default namespace on the given node or false if not.


result = node.isDefaultNamespace(namespaceURI) 
  • result holds the return value true or false.
  • namespaceURI is a string representing the namespace against which the element will be checked.


var XULNS = "http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul";
var el = document.getElementsByTagNameNS(XULNS, 'textbox')[0];

alert(el.isDefaultNamespace(XULNS)); // true
