Below is a demonstration of the features of the addElementXML function

Contents

clear; close all; clc;

Syntax

[varargout]=addElementXML(domNode,rootNode,elementName,elementValue);

Description

This function adds an element with the name elementName and the value elementValue to the XML defined by the XML object domNode. The element value can be a character/string or numerical data. Vector valued data is transformed to comma separated values e.g. 1:3 will become 1, 2, 3. Integer values will remain integer type. For non-integer numberical data exponential notation is used e.g. pi becomes 3.1415927e+00.

Examples

Defining an XML with elements and attributes

The below example codes this XML section:

febio_spec Material id="1" type="Ogden" c>2</c /material /Material /febio_spec

Initialize XML object

domNode = com.mathworks.xml.XMLUtils.createDocument('febio_spec');
rootNode=domNode.getElementsByTagName('febio_spec').item(0);

Add elements

% Add first element
elementName='Material';
elementValue=[];
[domNode]=addElementXML(domNode,rootNode,elementName,elementValue);

% Add child element of first element
elementNode=domNode.getElementsByTagName(elementName).item(0);
elementName='material';
elementValue=[];
[domNode]=addElementXML(domNode,elementNode,elementName,elementValue);

% Add child element of the child element of the first element
subElementNode=domNode.getElementsByTagName(elementName).item(0);
elementName='c';
elementValue=2;
[domNode]=addElementXML(domNode,subElementNode,elementName,elementValue);

Defining element attributes

attributeStruct.id=1; %id attribute
attributeStruct.type='Ogden'; %Type attribute
[domNode]=addAttributeSetXML(domNode,subElementNode,attributeStruct);

View XML

xmlView(domNode);
