       The QDomAttr class represents one attribute of a QDomElement.

       For example, the following piece of XML produces an element with no children, but two

           <link href="" color="red" />

       You can access the attributes of an element with code like this:

           QDomElement e = //...
           QDomAttr a = e.attributeNode( "href" );
           cout << a.value() << endl;                // prints ""
           a.setValue( "" ); // change the node's attribute
           QDomAttr a2 = e.attributeNode( "href" );
           cout << a2.value() << endl;               // prints ""

       This example also shows that changing an attribute received from an element changes the
       attribute of the element. If you do not want to change the value of the element's
       attribute you must use cloneNode() to get an independent copy of the attribute.

       QDomAttr can return the name() and value() of an attribute. An attribute's value is set
       with setValue(). If specified() returns TRUE the value was either set in the document or
       set with setValue(); otherwise the value hasn't been set. The node this attribute is
       attached to (if any) is returned by ownerElement().

       For further information about the Document Object Model see
       Level-1/ and For a more general introduction of
       the DOM implementation see the QDomDocument documentation.

       See also XML.


QDomAttr::QDomAttr ()

       Constructs an empty attribute.

QDomAttr::QDomAttr ( const QDomAttr & x )

       Constructs a copy of x.

       The data of the copy is shared (shallow copy): modifying one node will also change the
       other. If you want to make a deep copy, use cloneNode().

QDomAttr::~QDomAttr ()

       Destroys the object and frees its resources.

bool QDomAttr::isAttr () const [virtual]

       Returns TRUE.

       Reimplemented from QDomNode.

QString QDomAttr::name () const [virtual]

       Returns the attribute's name.

QDomNode::NodeType QDomAttr::nodeType () const [virtual]

       Returns AttributeNode.

       Reimplemented from QDomNode.

QDomAttr & QDomAttr::operator= ( const QDomAttr & x )

       Assigns x to this DOM attribute.

       The data of the copy is shared (shallow copy): modifying one node will also change the
       other. If you want to make a deep copy, use cloneNode().

QDomElement QDomAttr::ownerElement () const [virtual]

       Returns the element node this attribute is attached to or a null node if this attribute is
       not attached to any element.

void QDomAttr::setValue ( const QString & v ) [virtual]

       Sets the attribute's value to v.

       See also value().

bool QDomAttr::specified () const [virtual]

       Returns TRUE if the attribute has either been expicitly specified in the XML document or
       was set by the user with setValue(). Returns FALSE if the value hasn't been specified or

       See also setValue().

QString QDomAttr::value () const [virtual]

       Returns the value of the attribute or QString::null if the attribute has not been

       See also specified() and setValue().
