    JS -- XML Question - Can I add attributes using Javascript?

    lanejd Level 1

      I want to add an attribute to an element tag, but I don't see how to do it programmatically. Is it possible? Also, is there a way to name an element tag dynamically? For example:

       

      The way to add a child element is to either use the appendChild method like this:

       

      XMLObject.appendChild(<childElement/>);
      XMLObject.childElement= "something";
      

       

      or just add it like this:

       

      XMLObject.childElement = "something";
      

       

      Right? (Side Question: Is there a difference between these two methods?).

       

      What I want to do is to either add a dynamic attribute to a statically named child, or to create a dynamically named child.

       

      I haven't been able to figure this out myself. Any ideas?
