NonDocumentTypeChildNode

The NonDocumentTypeChildNode interface contains methods that are particular to Node objects that can have a parent, but not suitable for DocumentType.

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

Properties

There are no inherited properties.

NonDocumentTypeChildNode.nextElementSibling Read only
Returns the Element immediately following this node in its parent's children list, or null if there is no Element in the list following this node.

Methods

There are neither inherited nor specific methods.
