XML DOM - baseURI Attribute


Hello folks! welcome back to a new edition of our tutorial on XML DOM. In this tutorial, we are going to be studying about the XML DOM baseURI attribute.

The baseURI attribute is used to specify the absolute base URI of the node.

Syntax

The following below is the syntax to use the baseURI attribute -

nodeObject.baseURI

Example

Following below are the node.xml contents -

<?xml version = "1.0"?>
<Company>
   <Employee category = "Technical">
      <FirstName>Kennedy</FirstName>
      <LastName>Nkpara</LastName>
      <ContactNo>1234567890</ContactNo>
      <Email>kennedynkpara@xyz.com</Email>
   </Employee>
   
   <Employee category = "Non-Technical">
      <FirstName>Stephanie</FirstName>
      <LastName>Francis</LastName>
      <ContactNo>1234667898</ContactNo>
      <Email>stephaniefrancis@xyz.com</Email>
   </Employee>
   
   <Employee category = "Management">
      <FirstName>Justice</FirstName>
      <LastName>Dauglas</LastName>
      <ContactNo>1234562350</ContactNo>
      <Email>justicedauglas@xyz.com</Email>
   </Employee>
</Company>


The following example below illustrates the usage of the baseURI attribute -

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
   <head>
      <script>
         function loadXMLDoc(filename) {
            if (window.XMLHttpRequest) {
               xhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
            } else // code for IE5 and IE6 {
               xhttp = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
            }
            xhttp.open("GET",filename,false);
            xhttp.send();
            return xhttp.responseXML;
         }
      </script>
   </head>
   <body>
      <script>
         xmlDoc = loadXMLDoc("/dom/node.xml");

         x = xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName('Employee')[0];
         document.write("Base URI: "+x.baseURI);
        
      </script>
   </body>
</html>

Output

Save the file as nodeattribute_baseuri.html on the server's path (this file and node.xml should be on the same path in your server). This gives us the following output below -
