PHP | DOMElement setAttributeNode() Function

  • Last Updated : 05 Mar, 2020

The DOMElement::setAttributeNode() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to add a new attribute node to element.

Syntax:

DOMAttr DOMElement::setAttributeNode( DOMAttr $attr )

Parameters: This function accepts a single parameter $attr which holds the attribute node to be added.

Return Value: This function returns an DOMAttr value containing old node if the value has been replaced or NULL.

Exceptions: This function throws DOM_NO_MODIFICATION_ALLOWED_ERR, if the node is readonly.



Below given programs illustrate the DOMElement::setAttributeNode() function in PHP:

Program 1:




<?php
  
// Create a new DOMDocument
$dom = new DOMDocument();
   
// Create an element
$node = $dom->createElement("p", 'GeeksforGeeks');
   
// Add the node to the dom
$newnode = $dom->appendChild($node);
   
// Create a DOMAttr instance which
// increase the font-size
$attr = new DOMAttr('style', 'font-size: 80px;');
  
// Set the attribute
$newnode->setAttributeNode($attr);
   
// View the XML
echo $dom->saveXML();
?>

Output:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<p style="font-size: 80px;">GeeksforGeeks</p>

Program 2:




<?php
  
// Create a new DOMDocument
$dom = new DOMDocument();
  
// Load the XML
$dom->loadXML("<?xml version=\"1.0\"?>
<root>
    <html>
        <h1 id=\"my_id\"> Geeksforgeeks </h1>
        <h2> Second heading </h2>
    </html>
</root>");
  
// Get the elements
$node = $dom->getElementsByTagName('h1')[0];
   
echo "Before the addition of attributes: <br>";
  
// Get the attribute count
$attributeCount = $node->attributes->count();
echo 'No of attributes => ' . $attributeCount;
   
// Create a DOMAttr instance
$attr = new DOMAttr('class', 'value');
  
// Add the new attribute
$node->setAttributeNode($attr);
   
echo "<br>After the addition of attributes: <br>";
   
// Get the attribute count
$attributeCount = $node->attributes->count();
echo 'No of attributes => ' . $attributeCount;
?>

Output:

Before the addition of attributes:
No of attributes => 1
After the addition of attributes:
No of attributes => 2
