Hi,

 I have the xml file given below. Here I want to get the values based on the id(attribute) of node page. Means I want that that particular node's all attribute values that matches with the attribute 'id'.



<map>
<page id="home" name="Home" content="home.xml" template="home.php" bar="home_bar.xml"/>

<page id="training" name="Training" content="training.xml" template="text.php" bar="training_bar.xml">
         <page id="training-trainings" name="Trainings" content="training-trainings.xml" template="text.php" bar="training_bar.xml"/>
        <page id="training-workshops" name="Workshops" content="training-workshops.xml" template="text.php" bar="training_bar.xml"/>
        <page id="training-agenda" name="Agenda" content="training-agenda.xml" template="text.php" bar="training_bar.xml"/>
</page>

<page id="products" name="Products" content="products.xml" template="text.php" bar="products_bar.xml">
        <page id="products-brands" name="Brands" content="products-brands.xml" template="text.php" bar="products_bar.xml"/>
       <page id="products-offers" name="Offers" content="products-offers.xml" template="text.php" bar="products_bar.xml"/>
</page>
</map>

Thanks,
Looking forward for your help

Hello gstalin,

There is a XMLReader extension is an XML Pull parser. The reader acts as a cursor going forward on the document stream and stopping at each node on the way.

XMLReader->getAttribute() - Get value of attribute by name

If you don't want to parse the entire file usign PHP's extensions (there are plenty examples on http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.xml.php), you could do something like:
<?php
$id = 1; // page_id you're looking for
$file = "yourfile.xml"; // xml file

$search_str = '<page id="' . $id . '"';
if (!($fp = fopen($file, "r"))) {
   die("could not open XML input");
}
while ($getline = fread($fp, 4096)) {
   if (strpos($getline, '$search_str)) {
      $found = 1;
      break;
   }
}
// now $getline contains the attributes of the searched tag
// you can var_dump($getline);
// and then explode ($getline, ' ');
// and whatever else you need
?>
