XMLNodeAttributes Context

[XMLNodeAttributes ref=...&path=...]<WebDNA> [/XMLNodeAttributes]


This context is used to iterate the attributes of a specific XML node. The 'path' parameter is used to locate the node. As with the [XMLNodes] context, the 'path' parameter has three modes; 'named:', 'indexed:', and 'xpath:'.


Optional Tag Parameters:

· ref - Reference to an xml object variable. If this parameter is not provided, then it is assumed that there is an 'outer' [xmlnode/s] context from which to reference a particular XML node.

· path - Path to the desired XML node. If an XPath expression is used, it should evaluate to a single node.


Optional Context Tags:

· [name] - The name of the current iterated XML node attribute.

· [value] - The value of the current iterated XML node attribute.

· [index] - The 'count' of the current iterated attribute.

· [numfound] - The total 'count' of iterated attributes.

 

Lets use the [XMLNodeAttributes] context to retrieve the attributes of the first CD node of the example1.xml file...

 

[xmlparse var=xml_var1][include file=example1.xml][/xmlparse]

Attributes for the 'CD' node:

[xmlnode ref=xml_var1&path=indexed:1/1]
[content]
[/xmlnode]
Are...

[xmlnodeattributes ref=xml_var1&path=indexed:1/1]
[name]=[value]

[/xmlnodeattributes]

 

Results...

 

Attributes for the 'CD' node:

<CD status="instock" id="123"> <TITLE>Empire Burlesque</TITLE> <ARTIST>Bob Dylan</ARTIST> <COUNTRY>USA</COUNTRY> <COMPANY>Columbia</COMPANY> <PRICE>10.90</PRICE> <YEAR>1985</YEAR> </CD> Are...
id=123
status=instock

 

To simplify the code, we could place the [XmlNodeAttributes] context 'inside' of the [XMLNode] context. In this case, we will not need to supply the 'path' or 'ref' parameters to [XmlNodeAttributes], since it will use the 'implied' XML node in the outer [XMLNode] context.

We use...


[xmlparse var=xml_var1][include file=example1.xml][/xmlparse]

Attributes for the 'CD' node:
[xmlnode ref=xml_var1&path=indexed:1/1]
[content]
Are...

[xmlnodeattributes]
[name]=[value]

[/xmlnodeattributes]
[/xmlnode]

 

Results...
