Handle Attributes and Methods Reference : XML-NODE-NAME attribute

XML-NODE-NAME attribute

Indicates the name of the XML element or attribute representing the ProDataSet, the temp-table, the temp-table buffer, or the temp-table buffer-field object name in an XML document.
Data type: CHARACTER
Access: Readable/Writeable
Applies to: Buffer object handle, Buffer-field object handle, ProDataSet object handle, Temp-table object handle
This attribute's purpose overlaps with the SERIALIZE-NAME attribute. Because of this overlap, the attributes interact as follows:
*The READ-XML( ) and WRITE-XML( ) methods always use the XML-NODE-NAME attribute value. If you set a value for the XML-NODE-NAME attribute, it keeps that value regardless of how you set the SERIALIZE-NAME attribute.
*If you do not set the XML-NODE-NAME attribute and set the SERIALIZE-NAME attribute, the AVM sets XML-NODE-NAME equal to SERIALIZE-NAME.
*If you do not set either attribute, the AVM sets both to the ABL object name.
This attribute allows you to work around ABL names that use illegal XML characters or to work around XML element or attribute names that are reserved words in ABL.
For more information about using this attribute, see OpenEdge Development: Working with XML.
