    ChildNode

    The ChildNode interface contains methods that are particular to Node objects that can have a parent.

    ChildNode is a raw interface and no object of this type can be created; it is implemented by Element, DocumentType, and CharacterData objects.

    Properties

    There is neither inherited, nor specific property.

    Methods

    There is no inherited method.

    ChildNode.remove()
    Removes this ChildNode from the children list of its parent.
    ChildNode.before()
    Inserts a set of Node or DOMString objects in the children list of this ChildNode's parent, just before this ChildNode. DOMString objects are inserted as equivalent Text nodes.
    ChildNode.after()
    Inserts a set of Node or DOMString objects in the children list of this ChildNode's parent, just after this ChildNode. DOMString objects are inserted as equivalent Text nodes.
    ChildNode.replaceWith()
    Replace this ChildNode in the children list of its parent with a set of Node or DOMString objects. DOMString objects are inserted as equivalent Text nodes.

    Specification Status Comment
    DOM
    The definition of 'ChildNode' in that specification.
    Living Standard Splitted the ElementTraversal interface in ParentNode and ChildNode. The previousElementSibling and nextElementSibling are now defined on the latter.
    The CharacterData and DocumentType implemented the new interfaces.
    Added the remove(), before(), after() and replaceWith() methods.
    Element Traversal Specification
