dom_import_simplexml Получает объект класса DOMElement из объекта класса SimpleXMLElement


dom_import_simplexml(object $node): DOMElement

Эта функция берет узел node класса SimpleXML и превращает его в узел DOMElement. Затем этот новый объект может быть использован как собственный узел DOMElement.

Список параметров


Узел SimpleXMLElement.

Возвращаемые значения

Добавленный узел DOMElement.

Пример #1 Импорт SimpleXML в DOM с помощью функции dom_import_simplexml()


= simplexml_load_string('<books><book><title>чепуха</title></book></books>');

if (
$sxe === false) {
'Ошибка при разборе документа';

$dom_sxe = dom_import_simplexml($sxe);
if (!
$dom_sxe) {
'Ошибка при преобразовании XML';

$dom = new DOMDocument('1.0');
$dom_sxe = $dom->importNode($dom_sxe, true);
$dom_sxe = $dom->appendChild($dom_sxe);

No you don't. Just do:
= dom_import_simplexml($xml)->ownerDocument;

//No need to initiate, import and append on example#1

//use ownerDocument propertie
echo $dom->ownerDocument->saveXML();

SimpleXML is an 'Object Mapping XML API'. It is not DOM, per se. SimpleXML converts the XML elements into PHP's native data types.

The dom_import_simplexml and simplexml_import_dom functions do *not* create separate copies of the original object. You are free to use the methods of either or both interchangeably, since the underlying instance is the same.

// initialize a simplexml object
$sxe = simplexml_load_string('<root/>');

// get a dom interface on the simplexml object
$dom = dom_import_simplexml($sxe);

// dom adds a new element under the root
$element = $dom->appendChild(new DOMElement('dom_element'));

// dom adds an attribute on the new element
$element->setAttribute('creator', 'dom');

// simplexml adds an attribute on the dom element
$sxe->dom_element['sxe_attribute'] = 'added by simplexml';

// simplexml adds a new element under the root
$element = $sxe->addChild('sxe_element');

// simplexml adds an attribute on the new element
$element['creator'] = 'simplexml';

// dom finds the simplexml element (via DOMNodeList->index)
$element = $dom->getElementsByTagName('sxe_element')->item(0);

// dom adds an attribute on the simplexml element
$element->setAttribute('dom_attribute', 'added by dom');

echo (
echo (


SimpleXMLElement Object
[dom_element] => SimpleXMLElement Object
[@attributes] => Array
[creator] => dom
[sxe_attribute] => added by simplexml


[sxe_element] => SimpleXMLElement Object
[@attributes] => Array
[creator] => simplexml
[dom_attribute] => added by dom



What this illustrates is that both interfaces are operating on the same underlying object instance. Also, when you dom_import_simplexml, you can create and add new elements without reference to an ownerDocument (or documentElement).

So passing a SimpleXMLElement to another method does not mean the recipient is limited to using SimpleXML methods.

Hey Presto! Your telescope has become a pair of binoculars!

I've found that newer versions of PHP5 require some special syntax in order to properly convert between SimpleXML and DOM. It's not as easy as calling dom_import_simplexml() with a SimpleXML node. To get a proper DOM document (which you need to do most things) you need:
//$xml is a SimpleXML instance
$domnode = dom_import_simplexml($xml);
$dom = new DOMDocument();
$domnode = $dom->importNode($domnode, true);

Switching back, though, is, well...simple.

//$dom is a DOMDocument instance
$xml = simplexml_import_dom($dom);

Very useful to add a CDATA node with SimpleXMLElement (use it like addChild) :

class My_SimpleXMLElement extends SimpleXMLElement {

public function
addChildWithCData($name, $value = NULL) {
$new_child = $this->addChild($name);

$node = dom_import_simplexml($new_child);
$no = $node->ownerDocument;
