XMLTree doesn't just restrict you to XML elements - you can easily add attributes to any element as well, simply by specifying them as an associative array of name-value pairs in your calls to the addRoot() or addChild() methods. Here's an example,


<?php // include class include("XML/Tree.php"); // instantiate object $tree = new XML_Tree(); // add the root element $root =& $tree->addRoot("superhero", NULL, array("owner" => "Marvel Comics")); // add child elements $name =& $root->addChild("name", "Peter Parker aka Spiderman"); $age =& $root->addChild("age", 21); $sex =& $root->addChild("sex", "male"); $location =& $root->addChild("location", "Manhattan"); // print tree $tree->dump(); ?>
and here's the output:

<?xml version="1.0"?> <superhero owner="Marvel Comics"> <name>Peter Parker aka Spiderman</name> <age>21</age> <sex>male</sex> <location>Manhattan</location> </superhero>
This works with the addChild() method as well - here's an example,

<?php // include class include("XML/Tree.php"); // instantiate object $tree = new XML_Tree(); // add the root element $root =& $tree->addRoot("superheroes"); // add child elements $name =& $root->addChild("member", "Spiderman", array("sex" => "male", "location" => "Manhattan")); $name =& $root->addChild("member", "Superwoman", array("sex" => "female", "location" => "Metropolis")); $name =& $root->addChild("member", "Batman", array("sex" => "male", "location" => "Gotham City")); // print tree $tree->dump(); ?>
and here's the XML output.

<?xml version="1.0"?> <superheroes> <member sex="male" location="Manhattan">Spiderman</member> <member sex="female" location="Metropolis">Superwoman</member> <member sex="male" location="Gotham City">Batman</member> </superheroes>
