    NodeIterator.referenceNode

    This is an experimental technology
    Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the spec changes.

    The NodeIterator.referenceNode read-only returns the Node to which the iterator is anchored; as new nodes are inserted, the iterator remains anchored to the reference node as specified by this property.

    Syntax

    node = nodeIterator.referenceNode;
    

    Example

    var nodeIterator = document.createNodeIterator(
        document.body,
        NodeFilter.SHOW_ELEMENT,
        { acceptNode: function(node) { return NodeFilter.FILTER_ACCEPT; } },
        false
    );
    node = nodeIterator.referenceNode;
