XML DOM - The Attr Object

The Attr object represents an attribute of an Element object.


The Attr object

The Attr object represents an attribute of an Element object. The allowable values for attributes are usually defined in a DTD.

Because the Attr object is also a Node, it inherits the Node object's properties and methods. However, an attribute does not have a parent node and is not considered to be a child node of an element, and will return null for many of the Node properties.
