Libraries.Data.Formats.ElementImplementation Documentation

The ElementImplementation class is used to represent a parsed XML element. In XML, an element is everything from the element's start tag to the element's end tag. Elements can contain text, attributes, and other elements.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats

ElementImplementation bookElement
bookElement:SetName("book")
bookElement:SetValue("Lord of the Flies")

Attribute authorAttribute
author

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

Actions Documentation

Add(Libraries.Data.Formats.Attribute attribute)

This action adds the given attribute to the array of attributes.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats
        ElementImplementation bookElement
        Attribute authorAttribute
        author

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.

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.

SetName(text name)

This action sets the name of the element to the given value.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats
        ElementImplementation bookElement
        bookElement:SetName("book

Parameters

SetValue(text value)

This action sets the value of the element to the given value.

Example Code

use Libraries.Data.Formats
        ElementImplementation bookElement
        bookElement:SetValue("Lord of the Flies

Parameters
