Below examples illustrate the DOMElement::getAttributeNode() function in PHP:

    <div attr=\"value\"> DIV 1 </div>
</body>");
  
// Get the elements by tagname
$elements = $dom->getElementsByTagName('div');

echo $name . " => " . $value . "<br>";
?>

Example 2:

<body>
    <div id=\"div1\"> DIV 1 </div>
    <div id=\"div2\"> DIV 2 </div>
    <div id=\"div3\"> DIV 3 </div>
</body>");
  
// Get the elements by tagname
$elements = $dom->getElementsByTagName('div');
  
// Get the id of a element
echo "All the divs with id values are: <br>";
foreach ($elements as $element) {
    // Get the attribute node
    $node = $element->getAttributeNode('id');
  
    // Extract name
    $name = $node->name;
  
    // Extract value
    $value = $node->value;
      
    echo $name . " => " . $value . "<br>";
}
?>
