Class XMLNode (Word VBA)
The class XMLNode represents a single XML element applied to a document.
Class Document gives access to class XMLNode.
To use a XMLNode class variable it first needs to be instantiated, for example
Dim xml as XMLNode Set xml = Dim strXPath As String: strXPath = ActiveDocument.SelectSingleNode(XPath:=strXPath)
Here is an example of processing the XMLNode items in a collection.
Dim nod As XMLNode Dim strValid As String For Each nod In ActiveDocument.XMLNodes nod.Validate If nod.ValidationStatus <> wdXMLValidationStatusOK Then strValid = strValid & nod.BaseName & vbTab & nod.ValidationErrorText & vbCrLf End If Next MsgBox "The following elements do not validate against " & "the schema." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & strValid & vbCrLf & "You should fix these elements before continuing."
Copy - Copies the specified XML element, excluding XML markup, to the Clipboard.
Cut - Removes the specified XML element from the document and places it on the Clipboard.
Delete - Deletes the specified XML element from an XML document.
RemoveChild - Removes a child element from the specified element.
SelectSingleNode - Returns an XMLNode object that represents the first child element that matches the XPath parameter within the specified XML element.
SetValidationError - Changes the validation error text displayed to a user for a specified node and forces Word to report a node as invalid.
Validate - Validates an individual XML element against the XML schemas that are attached to a document.
BaseName (Default member) - Returns a String that represents the name of the element without any prefix.
FirstChild returns a DiagramNode object that represents the first child node of a parent node.
HasChildNodes returns a Boolean that represents whether an XML node has child nodes.
LastChild returns an XMLNode object that represents the last child node of an XML element.
Level returns a WdXMLNodeLevel constant that represents whether an XML element is part of a paragraph, is a paragraph, or is contained within a table cell or contains a table row.
NamespaceURI returns a String that represents the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the schema namespace for the specified object.
NextSibling returns an XMLNode object that represents the next element in the document that is at the same level as the specified element.
NodeType returns a WdXMLNodeType constant that represents the type of node.
NodeValue returns or sets a String that represents the value of an XML element.
ParentNode returns an XMLNode object that represents the parent element of the specified element.
PlaceholderText sets or returns a String that represents the text displayed for an element that contains no text.
PreviousSibling returns an XMLNode object that represents the previous element in the document that is at the same level as the specified element.
Text returns or sets the text contained within the XML element.
ValidationErrorText returns a String that represents the description for a validation error on an XMLNode object.
ValidationStatus returns a WdXMLValidationStatus constant that represents whether an element or attribute is valid according to the attached schema.
WordOpenXML returns a String that represents the XML for the node in the Microsoft Word Open XML format.
Document - Represents a document. The Document object is a member of the Documents collection. The Documents collection contains all the Document objects that are currently open in Word.
Range - Represents a contiguous area in a document. Each Range object is defined by a starting and ending character position.
XMLNodes - A collection of XMLNode objects that represents the nodes in the tree view of the XML Structure task pane, which indicates the elements that a user has applied to a document. Each node in the tree view is an instance of an XMLNode object. The hierarchy in the tree view indicates whether a node contains child nodes.Y
