Use the revXMLChildNames function to find out what child nodes are under a parent node.


The treeID is the number returned by the revCreateXMLTree or revCreateXMLTreeFromFile function when you created the XML tree.

The startNode is the path to the node whose child nodes you want to list.

The nameDelim is a string that separates each child node's name from the rest.

The childName is a string specifying which child nodes to list. If it is empty, all child nodes are listed. Otherwise, only child nodes whose name matches the childName are listed.

The includeChildCount is true or false. If the includeChildCount is true, each node's name is followed by the number of children it has, in brackets.


The revXMLChildNames function returns a string.


If the revXMLChildNames function encounters an error, it returns an error message starting with "xmlerr".

Important! The revXMLChildNamesfunction is part of the XML library. To ensure that the function works in a standalone application, you must include this custom library when you create your standalone. In the Inclusions section on the General screen of the Standalone Application Settings window, make sure "XML Library" is selected in the list of script libraries.

Note: description of includeChildCount above is incorrect. "If the includeChildCount is true, each node's name is followed by the number of children it has, in brackets". In fact, if this parameter is true, then each node's name is followed by the index to that child - ie the data you need to reliably construct a path to it, if there is more than one child with the same name. So if a node has children a, b, a, then with this parameter the return value will be "a[1], b[1], a[2]".
