DotNetBrowser 1.8.1 brings an update to the DOM API. Now it is possible to create new DOM elements and text nodes, append them as child nodes to the existing structure, insert node before another one, replace and remove an existing node. 

This new functionality allows to modify the whole DOM structure or the particular part of it.


The following sample demonstrates how to create a new DOM element and text node and append these new nodes as child nodes to the existing one.

               browser.FinishLoadingFrameEvent += delegate(object sender, FinishLoadingEventArgs e)
                   if (e.IsMainFrame)
                       DOMDocument document = e.Browser.GetDocument();
                       DOMNode root = document.GetElementById("root");
                       DOMNode textNode = document.CreateTextNode("Some text");
                       DOMElement paragraph = document.CreateElement("p");
