3. Attributes tool

  • There are two methods for adding or changing the attributes of the (explicitly or implicitly) selected element:

    1. Using the attribute form (the upper side of the attribute tool).This should be the method of choice for persons who prefer to use the keyboard.

    2. Using the attribute table (the lower side of the attribute tool). This should be the method of choice for persons who prefer to use the mouse.

  • Adding an attribute for an element of the unconstrained type must be done using the attribute form. Simply type the name and value of the attribute in the attribute form and click on the OK button (or press Enter in the value field).

  • Adding an attribute that matches an attribute wildcard must be done using the attribute form. Simply type the name and value of the attribute using the attribute form and click on the OK button (or press Enter in the value field). XXE will of course check that the name you have typed conforms to the attribute wildcard.
