O.P. [?] Using XML DOM "childNodes" property...
I'm trying to use Node.childNodes (as opposed to enumerating Node.selectNodes(), so that I can access comments in interfaces, as well as windows, controls and elements.

...except that I don't know how to loop through one.  :S
Javascript code:
XMLO = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDom"); // defined globally
if (XMLO.load(MsgPlus.ScriptFilesPath + "\\File.xml")) // load a file
{
    var WindowEnum = new Enumerator(XMLO.selectNodes("//Interfaces/Window"));
    for (; !WindowEnum.atEnd(); WindowEnum.moveNext()) // loop through each window in the file
    {
        var WindowId = WindowNode.getAttribute("Id");
        var WindowXMLPath = "//Interfaces/Window[@Id=\"" + WindowId + "\"]/";
        // process window size, position etc.
        var ControlEnum = XMLO.selectSingleNode(WindowXMLPath + "Controls").childNodes;
         // error: object required (-2146827864)
    }
}

just guessing here, but shouldn't there be slashes after WindowXMLPath ?

The slashes are in the path variable.
Javascript code:
var WindowXMLPath = "//Interfaces/Window[@Id=\"" + WindowId + "\"]/";
                                                          // here ^

Are you sure the window actually has a "Controls" node? It seems to work fine here...

As for how to loop through them, you simply create an Enumerator like you have already done for the Windows.

JScript code:
var ControlEnum = new Enumerator(node.childNodes);
for(; !ControlEnum.atEnd(); ControlEnum.moveNext()) {
    ...
}

Okay, I think I've got it working now.  :)
