SppXPathGetElementAttributes

Returns an Array containing the Name and Value for each element attribute of an XML object given the path to the XML element.

Syntax

SppXPathGetElementAttributes([XML],[Element Path])

Where:

XML is an XML object such as that returned value from SppXMLFromString or SppXMLLoad, or XML as a text string.

Element Path is a full path to the element inside the XML object (for example; Quote\Items). If the element is part of an Array with the same name, the path would need to use an instance number (for example; Quote\Items[2] to return the value for the second item).

Element Path is case sensitive.
