PHP | DOMDocument saveXML() Function

  • Last Updated : 27 Aug, 2019
Geek Week

The DOMDocument::saveXML() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to create an XML document from the DOM representation. This function is used after building a new dom document from scratch.

Syntax:

string DOMDocument::saveXML( DOMNode $node, int $options = 0 )

Parameters: This function accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • $node: This parameter is used for output only for specific node without XML declaration rather than the entire document.
  • $options: This parameter adds the additional options. Currently this parameter supports only LIBXML_NOEMPTYTAG.

Return Value: This function returns the XML document on success or FALSE on failure.

Below programs illustrate the DOMDocument::saveXML() function in PHP:



Program 1:




<?php
  
// Create a new DOMDocument
$domDocument = new DOMDocument('1.0', 'iso-8859-1');
  
// Use createTextNode() function to create a text node
$domTN = $domDocument->createTextNode('GeeksforGeeks');
  
// Append element to the document
$domDocument->appendChild($domTN);
  
// Use saveXML() function to save the XML document
echo $domDocument->saveXML();
  
?>
Output:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
GeeksforGeeks

Program 2:




<?php
  
// Create a new DOMDocument
$domDocument = new DOMDocument('1.0', 'iso-8859-1');
  
// Use createElement() function to create an element node
$domElement = $domDocument->createElement('organization',
                                       'GeeksforGeeks');
  
// Append element to the document
$domDocument->appendChild($domElement);
  
// Use saveXML() function to create a XML document
echo $domDocument->saveXML();
  
?>
Output:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<organization>GeeksforGeeks</organization>
