</Company>


The following example illustrates the usage of the removeNamedItemNS method -

<!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_ns.xml");

         xmlDoc = xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName('e:FirstName')[0].attributes;
         document.write("Removed Item Attribute node is :- ");
         document.write(xmlDoc.removeNamedItemNS("http://www.webdesigntutorialz.com/technical/",'language').nodeName);

      </script>
    </body>
</html>

Output

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

Removed Item Attribute node is :- e:language
