Libraries.Data.Formats.AttributesImplementation Documentation

The AttributesImplementation class is used to represent an array of Attributes that have been Parsed from an XML document. Like the Array class, the location always starts at 0, this means the first item in the attributes is at location 0, the second is at location 1, etc.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats

Attribute data
data:name = "day"
data:value = "01"
AttributesImplementation myAttributes
myAttributes:Add(data)
text value = myAttributes:GetName(

Inherits from: Libraries.Language.Object, Libraries.Data.Formats.Attributes

Actions Documentation

Add(Libraries.Data.Formats.Attribute attribute)

This action adds a value at the end of the array of attributes.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats
        Attribute data
        data:name = "day"
        data:value = "01"
        AttributesImplementation myAttributes
        myAttributes:Add(dat

Parameters

Compare(Libraries.Language.Object object)

This action compares two object hash codes and returns an integer. The result is larger if this hash code is larger than the object passed as a parameter, smaller, or equal. In this case, -1 means smaller, 0 means equal, and 1 means larger. This action was changed in Quorum 7 to return an integer, instead of a CompareResult object, because the previous implementation was causing efficiency issues.

Example Code

Object o
        Object t
        integer result = o:Compare(t) //1 (larger), 0 (equal), or -1 (smalle

Parameters

Return

integer: The Compare result, Smaller, Equal, or Larger.

Empty()

This action empty's the array of attributes, clearing out all of the items contained within it.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats
        AttributesImplementation myAttributes
        Attribute firstName
        Attribute lastName
        Attribute dob
        myAttributes:Add(firstName)
        myAttributes:Add(lastName)
        myAttributes:Add(dob)
        myAttributes:Empty

Equals(Libraries.Language.Object object)

This action determines if two objects are equal based on their hash code values.

Example Code

use Libraries.Language.Object
        use Libraries.Language.Types.Text
        Object o
        Text t
        boolean result = o:Equals(

Parameters

Return

boolean: True if the hash codes are equal and false if they are not equal.

GetHashCode()

This action gets the hash code for an object.

Example Code

Object o
        integer hash = o:GetHashCode

Return

integer: The integer hash code of the object.

GetName(integer index)

This action gets the name of the Attribute at the given location in the indexed array of Attributes.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats
        AttributesImplementation myAttributes
        Attribute data
        data:name = "day"
        myAttributes:Add(data)
        text value = myAttributes:GetName(

Parameters

Return

text: The name of the attribute at the indexed location.

GetSize()

This action gets the size of the array of Attributes.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats
        AttributesImplementation myAttributes
        integer size = myAttributes:GetSize

Return

integer:

GetValue(integer index)

This action gets the value of the Attribute at the given location in the indexed array of Attributes.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats
        AttributesImplementation myAttributes
        Attribute data
        data:value = "01"
        myAttributes:Add(data)
        text value = myAttributes:GetValue(

Parameters

Return

text: The value of the attribute at the indexed location.
