Returns the Attr node for the attribute with the given namespace and name.

Syntax

attributeNode = element.getAttributeNodeNS(namespace, nodeName) 
  • attributeNode is the node for specified attribute.
  • namespace is a string specifying the namespace of the attribute.
  • nodeName is a string specifying the name of the attribute.

== Example == TBD The example needs to be fixed pre> // html: <div id="top" /> t = document.getElementById("top"); specialNode = t.getAttributeNodeNS( "http://www.mozilla.org/ns/specialspace", "id"); // iNode.value = "full-top" </pre

Notes

getAttributeNodeNS is more specific than getAttributeNode in that it allows you to specify attributes that are part of a particular namespace. The corresponding setter method is setAttributeNodeNS.
