  • Last Updated : 26 Feb, 2020

The DOMElement::setIdAttribute() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to declare the attribute specified by name to be of type ID.

Syntax:

void DOMElement::setIdAttribute( string $name, bool $isId )

Parameters: This function accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • $name: It specifies the name of the attribute.
  • $isId: It specifies whether if you want name to be of type ID.

Return Value: This function returns nothing.

Exceptions: This function throws DOM_NO_MODIFICATION_ALLOWED_ERR, if the node is readonly or DOM_NOT_FOUND, if name is not an attribute of this element.



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

Example 1:




<?php
  
// Create a new DOM Document
$dom = new DOMDocument('1.0', 'iso-8859-1');
   
// Enable validate on parse
$dom->validateOnParse = true;
   
// Create a div element
$element = $dom->appendChild(new DOMElement('div'));
   
// Create a id attribute to div
$attr = $element->setAttributeNode(new DOMAttr('id',
                                  'geeksforgeeks'));
   
// Set that attribute as id
$element->setIDAttribute('id', true);
  
echo $dom->saveXML();
?>

Output: Press Ctrl+U to see the DOM.

Example 2:




<?php
  
// Create a new DOM Document
$dom = new DOMDocument('1.0', 'iso-8859-1');
   
// Enable validate on parse
$dom->validateOnParse = true;
   
// Create a div element
$element = $dom->appendChild(new DOMElement('div'
                                 'GEEKSFORGEEKS'));
   
// Create a id attribute to div
$attr = $element->setAttributeNode(new DOMAttr('id'
                                  'geeksforgeeks'));
   
// Set that attribute as id
$element->setIDAttribute('id', true);
   
// Get the text of element with id='geeksforgeeks'
// just to see if it works
$value = $dom->getElementById('geeksforgeeks')->textContent;
   
echo $value;
?>
