PHP | DOMNode getNodePath() Function

  • Last Updated : 27 Feb, 2020

The DOMNode::getNodePath() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to get an XPath location path for the node.

Syntax:

string DOMNode::getNodePath( void )

Parameters: This function doesn’t accept any parameters.

Return Value: This function returns a string containing the XPath, or NULL in case of an error.

Below examples illustrate the DOMNode::getNodePath() function in PHP:



Example 1:




<?php
  
// Create a new DOMDocument instance
$dom = new DOMDocument;
  
// Load the XML
$dom->loadXML('
<root>
    <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
</root>
');
  
// Print XPath of the element
echo $dom->getElementsByTagName('h1')
    ->item(0)->getNodePath();
?>

Output:

/root/h1

Example 2:




<?php
   
// Create a new DOMDocument instance
$dom = new DOMDocument;
   
// Load the XML
$dom->loadXML('
<root>
    <h1>Geeks</h1>
    <div>
        <h1>For</h1>
    </div>
    <h1>Geeks</h1>
</root>
');
   
// Print XPath of the element
for ($i = 0; $i < 3; $i++) {
  
    // Print where the line where the 'node' 
    // element was defined in
    echo $i+1 . ') The h1 tag\'s Xpath is: ' 
        . $dom->getElementsByTagName('h1')
        ->item($i)->getNodePath() . "<br>";
}
?>

Output:

1) The h1 tag's Xpath is: /root/h1[1]
2) The h1 tag's Xpath is: /root/div/h1
3) The h1 tag's Xpath is: /root/h1[2]
