DOMDocument::loadHTML

(PHP 5)

DOMDocument::loadHTML Load HTML from a string

Description

public bool DOMDocument::loadHTML ( string $source [, int $options = 0 ] )

The function parses the HTML contained in the string source. Unlike loading XML, HTML does not have to be well-formed to load. This function may also be called statically to load and create a DOMDocument object. The static invocation may be used when no DOMDocument properties need to be set prior to loading.

Parameters

source

The HTML string.

options

Since PHP 5.4.0 and Libxml 2.6.0, you may also use the options parameter to specify additional Libxml parameters.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure. If called statically, returns a DOMDocument or FALSE on failure.

Errors/Exceptions

If an empty string is passed as the source, a warning will be generated. This warning is not generated by libxml and cannot be handled using libxml's error handling functions.

This method may be called statically, but will issue an E_STRICT error.

While malformed HTML should load successfully, this function may generate E_WARNING errors when it encounters bad markup. libxml's error handling functions may be used to handle these errors.

Examples

Example #1 Creating a Document

<?php
$doc 
= new DOMDocument();
$doc->loadHTML("<html><body>Test<br></body></html>");
echo 
$doc->saveHTML();
?>

Changelog

Version Description
5.4.0 Added options parameter.
