CharacterData Class

The

CharacterData
interface extends Node with a set of attributes and methods for accessing character data in the DOM. For clarity this set is defined here rather than on each object that uses these attributes and methods. No DOM objects correspond directly to
CharacterData
, though
Text
and others do inherit the interface from it. All
offsets
in this interface start from
0
.
As explained in the
DOMString
interface, text strings in the DOM are represented in UTF-16, i.e. as a sequence of 16-bit units. In the following, the term 16-bit units is used whenever necessary to indicate that indexing on CharacterData is done in 16-bit units.

Name Description
CharacterData()

Methods

Name Description
appendData(string) Append the string to the end of the character data of the node. Upon success,
data
provides access to the concatenation of
data
and the
DOMString
specified.
deleteData(int, int) Remove a range of 16-bit units from the node. Upon success,
data
and
length
reflect the change.
insertData(int, string) Insert a string at the specified 16-bit unit offset.
replaceData(int, int, string) Replace the characters starting at the specified 16-bit unit offset with the specified string.
substringData(int, int) Extracts a range of data from the node.

Properties

Name Description
data The character data of the node that implements this interface. The DOM implementation may not put arbitrary limits on the amount of data that may be stored in a
CharacterData
node. However, implementation limits may mean that the entirety of a node's data may not fit into a single
DOMString
. In such cases, the user may call
substringData
to retrieve the data in appropriately sized pieces.
length The number of 16-bit units that are available through
data
and the
substringData
method below. This may have the value zero, i.e.,
CharacterData
nodes may be empty.
