Inheriting from the Element class provides a basic blueprint for a XML element.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats

class MyElement is Element

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.

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.

GetAttributes()

This action gets the attributes of the element.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats
        Element bookElement
        AttributesImplementation value = bookElement:GetAttributes

Return

Libraries.Data.Formats.AttributesImplementation: The AttributesImplementation for the element.

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()

This action gets the name of the element.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats
        Element bookElement
        text value = bookElement:GetName

Return

text: The name of the element.

GetValue()

This action gets the value of the element.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats
        Element bookElement
        text value = bookElement:GetValue

Return

text: The value of the element.
