Description

Use the CreateXML method to create a new instance of the XMLCheckpoint object.

Declaration

XML.CreateXML(NameDocumentOptions)

Name [in]    Required    String    
Document [in]    Required    An IXMLDOMDocument object    
Options [in]    Optional    An XMLCheckpointOptions object    
Result Boolean

Applies To

The method is applied to the following object:

Parameters

The method has the following parameters:

Name

Specifies the name of the element to be created.

To check whether the XML collection already has an element with the desired name, use the XML.Contains method.

Document

An object implementing the IXMLDOMDocument interface.

For information on methods and properties of the IXMLDOMDocument interface and about DOM, see the XML Core Services and Document Object Model article in the MSDN library.

Options

An XMLCheckpointOptions object that determines the options of a newly created XML checkpoint. To create an instance of the XMLCheckpointOptions object use the XML.CreateCheckpointOptions method.

If this parameter is omitted, the created XML checkpoint will have all the comparison settings disabled.

Result Value

True, if the element with the given name was created successfully, and False otherwise.

Example

The following example demonstrates how you can use the CreateXML method to create a new XML checkpoint.

JavaScript

function CreateXMLDemo()
{

  var XMLDoc;

  // Checks if NewXMLCheckpoint already exists in the Stores | XML collection.
  if (! XML.Contains("NewXMLCheckpoint"))
    {
    // Creates an IXMLDOMDocument object
    // If you have MSXML 4:
    XMLDoc = getActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.4.0");
    // If you have MSXML 6:
    XMLDoc = getActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.6.0");

    XMLDoc.async = false;
    // Loads data form the XML file to the IXMLDOMDocument object.
    XMLDoc.load("D:\\Work Folder\\SampleXMLFile.xml");

    // Creates NewXMLCheckpoint and checks if the creation is successful.
    if (XML.CreateXML("NewXMLCheckpoint", XMLDoc))
      Log.Message("NewXMLCheckpoint has been successfully created.")
    else
      Log.Error("Failed to create NewXMLCheckpoint.")
    }
  else
    // If the checkpoint already exists, posts an error message to the log.
    Log.Error("The NewXMLCheckpoint already exists in the Stores | XML collection.");

}

JScript

function CreateXMLDemo()
{

  var XMLDoc;

  // Checks if NewXMLCheckpoint already exists in the Stores | XML collection.
  if (! XML.Contains("NewXMLCheckpoint"))
    {
    // Creates an IXMLDOMDocument object
    // If you have MSXML 4:
    XMLDoc = Sys.OleObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.4.0");
    // If you have MSXML 6:
    XMLDoc = Sys.OleObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.6.0");

    XMLDoc.async = false;
    // Loads data form the XML file to the IXMLDOMDocument object.
    XMLDoc.load("D:\\Work Folder\\SampleXMLFile.xml");

    // Creates NewXMLCheckpoint and checks if the creation is successful.
    if (XML.CreateXML("NewXMLCheckpoint", XMLDoc))
      Log.Message("NewXMLCheckpoint has been successfully created.")
    else
      Log.Error("Failed to create NewXMLCheckpoint.")
    }
  else
    // If the checkpoint already exists, posts an error message to the log.
    Log.Error("The NewXMLCheckpoint already exists in the Stores | XML collection.");

}
