This interface is a compiled XPath expression that can be evaluated on a document or specific node to return information from its DOM tree.

Objects of this type are created by calling
The following example shows the use of the
<div>Number of <div>s: <output></output></div>
const xpath = "//div";
const evaluator = new XPathEvaluator();
const expression = evaluator.createExpression(xpath);
const result = expression.evaluate(document, XPathResult.ORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE);
document.querySelector("output").textContent = result.snapshotLength;
