XmlAttributeCollection.SetNamedItem(XmlNode) XmlAttributeCollection.SetNamedItem(XmlNode) XmlAttributeCollection.SetNamedItem(XmlNode) XmlAttributeCollection.SetNamedItem(XmlNode) Method

Definition

Adds a XmlNode using its Name property

public:
 override System::Xml::XmlNode ^ SetNamedItem(System::Xml::XmlNode ^ node);
public override System.Xml.XmlNode SetNamedItem (System.Xml.XmlNode node);
override this.SetNamedItem : System.Xml.XmlNode -> System.Xml.XmlNode
Public Overrides Function SetNamedItem (node As XmlNode) As XmlNode

Parameters

node
XmlNode XmlNode XmlNode XmlNode

An attribute node to store in this collection. The node will later be accessible using the name of the node. If a node with that name is already present in the collection, it is replaced by the new one; otherwise, the node is appended to the end of the collection.

Returns

If the node replaces an existing node with the same name, the old node is returned; otherwise, the added node is returned.

Exceptions

node was created from a different XmlDocument than the one that created this collection.

This XmlAttributeCollection is read-only.

node is an XmlAttribute that is already an attribute of another XmlElement object. To re-use attributes in other elements, you must clone the XmlAttribute objects you want to re-use.

Examples

The following example adds a new attribute to a document.

#using <System.Xml.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::IO;
using namespace System::Xml;
int main()
{
   XmlDocument^ doc = gcnew XmlDocument;
   doc->LoadXml( "<book ISBN='1-861001-57-5'><title>Pride And Prejudice</title></book>" );
   
   //Create a new attribute.
   XmlAttribute^ newAttr = doc->CreateAttribute( "genre" );
   newAttr->Value = "novel";
   
   //Create an attribute collection and add the new attribute
   //to the collection.
   XmlAttributeCollection^ attrColl = doc->DocumentElement->Attributes;
   attrColl->SetNamedItem( newAttr );
   Console::WriteLine( "Display the modified XML...\r\n" );
   Console::WriteLine( doc->OuterXml );
}

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample
{
  public static void Main(){
  
    XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
    doc.LoadXml("<book ISBN='1-861001-57-5'>" +
                "<title>Pride And Prejudice</title>" +
                "</book>");      

    //Create a new attribute.
    XmlAttribute newAttr = doc.CreateAttribute("genre");
    newAttr.Value = "novel";

    //Create an attribute collection and add the new attribute
    //to the collection.
    XmlAttributeCollection attrColl = doc.DocumentElement.Attributes;
    attrColl.SetNamedItem(newAttr);

    Console.WriteLine("Display the modified XML...\r\n");
    Console.WriteLine(doc.OuterXml);  
  }
