Details

Called within a callback procedure.

Also attributes of other elements than the current can be queried. But they will only return values, when the element is currently held in memory. If, for example, an element that has not yet been parsed or an element that has already been parsed but discarded again is queried, an error code will be returned. By default, all elements that have no child elements are discarded again after they have been parsed.
