hi have this part of the xml in my class:

<carController>
      <car max="160" min="0"/>    
</carController>


i dont have a pointer to the DomDocument... anyway here is an example of what i tried instead, but it does not work:

xercesc::DOMElement *carController= getDOMConfig(); // this gives me MY CONFIG the one above
xercesc::DOMNode *newCar = carController->getFirstChild()->cloneNode( false );  // this doesnt work
xercesc::DOMElement *car = static_cast<xercesc::DOMElement *>(carController->
            appendChild( newCar ));  // therfore this wont work also.
// ... here comes the saving the changes stuff

I am lost in what else to do.

How can I create a newCar node, in order for me to insert it into my  carController node? Also If it doesnt have any child nodes yet.

Thank you.

i found it, i did like this:
xercesc::DOMElement *carController= getDOMConfig();
xercesc::DOMDocument *config = carController->getOwnerDocument;
xercesc::DOMElement *newCar = config->createElement(xercesc::XMLString::transcode("car"));
