Notes

To retrieve attributes by index, use XMLElement's GetAttributeNode method.

Example

The following XML is stored in a constant called kXML:

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
 <League>
 	<Team name="Seagulls">
 		<Player name="Bob" position="1B" />
 		<Player name="Tom" position="2B" />
 	</Team>
 	<Team name="Pigeons">
 		<Player name="Bill" position="1B" />
 		<Player name="Tim" position="2B" />
 	</Team>
 	<Team name="Crows">
 		<Player name="Ben" position="1B" />
 		<Player name="Ty" position="2B" />
 	</Team>
 </League>

To add an attribute to the first team node (Seagulls):

Dim xml As New XmlDocument(kXml)

// Create an attribute node and assign it a value
Dim xa As XmlAttribute
xa = xml.CreateAttribute("TestAttribute")
xa.Value = "Test"

// Add the attribute to the XML document
xml.DocumentElement.FirstChild.SetAttributeNode(xa)

TextArea1.Text = xml.ToString
