(PHP 5)

DOMDocument::createElementCreate new element node

Description

DOMElement DOMDocument::createElement ( string $name [, string $value ] )

This function creates a new instance of class DOMElement. This node will not show up in the document unless it is inserted with (e.g.) DOMNode::appendChild().

Parameters

name

The tag name of the element.

The value of the element. By default, an empty element will be created. The value can also be set later with DOMElement::$nodeValue.

Return Values

Returns a new instance of class DOMElement or FALSE if an error occured.

Errors/Exceptions

Examples

Example #1 Creating a new element and inserting it as root

<?php

$dom 
= new DOMDocument('1.0''utf-8');

$element $dom->createElement('test''This is the root element!');

// We insert the new element as root (child of the document)
$dom->appendChild($element);

echo 
$dom->saveXML();
?>

The above example will output:

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <test>This is the root element!</test> 

Notes

Note:

The value will not be escaped. Use DOMDocument::createTextNode() to create a text node with escaping support.
