DomNode->insert_before --  Inserts new node as child

Description

domelement DomNode->insert_before ( domelement newnode, domelement refnode )

This function inserts the new node newnode right before the node refnode. The return value is the inserted node. If you plan to do further modifications on the appended child you must use the returned node.

(PHP >= 4.3 only) If newnode already is part of a document, it will be first unlinked from its existing context. If refnode is NULL, then newnode will be inserted at the end of the list of children.

domnode_insert_before() is very similar to domnode_append_child() as the following example shows which does the same as the example at domnode_append_child().

Example 1. Adding a child

<?php
include("example.inc");

if (!
$dom = domxml_open_mem($xmlstr)) {
  echo
"Error while parsing the document\n";
  exit;
}

$elements = $dom->get_elements_by_tagname("informaltable");
print_r($elements);
$element = $elements[0];

$newnode = $element->insert_before($element, $element);
$children = $newnode->children();
$attr = $children[1]->set_attribute("align", "left");

echo
"<pre>";
$xmlfile = $dom->dump_mem();
echo
htmlentities($xmlfile);
echo
"</pre>";
?>
