PHP | DOMNamedNodeMap count() Function

  • Last Updated : 26 Feb, 2020

The DOMNamedNodeMap::count() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to get the number of nodes in the map. It can be used to count attributes of a element.

Syntax:

int DOMNamedNodeMap::count( void )

Parameters: This function doesn’t accepts any parameter.

Return Value: This function returns and integer value containing the number of nodes in the map.

Below examples illustrate the DOMNamedNodeMap::count() function in PHP:



Example 1: In this example we will count the attributes of a element.




<?php
  
// Create a new DOMDocument
$dom = new DOMDocument();
   
// Load the XML
$dom->loadXML("<?xml version=\"1.0\"?>
<root>
    <html>
        <h1 id=\"first\" 
            class=\"first\" 
            style=\"color: blue\"> 
         Geeksforgeeks 
        </h1>
    </html>
</root>");
   
// Get the elements
$node = $dom->getElementsByTagName('h1')[0];
   
// Get the attribute count
$attributeCount = $node->attributes->count();
echo 'No of attributes => ' . $attributeCount;
?>

Output:

No of attributes => 3

Example 2: In this example we will check if count function fetches the latest no of attributes or not by altering the number of attributes.




<?php
  
// Create a new DOMDocument
$dom = new DOMDocument();
   
// Load the XML
$dom->loadXML("<?xml version=\"1.0\"?>
<root>
    <html>
        <h1 id=\"first\"
            class=\"first\"> 
          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;
    
// Set the id attribute
$node->setAttribute('new', 'value');
    
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 => 2
After the addition of attributes:
No of attributes => 3
