class PySide2.QtXml.QXmlDeclHandler
PySide2.QtXml.QXmlDeclHandler.attributeDecl(eName, aName, type, valueDefault, value)
Parameters
  • eName – str

  • aName – str

  • type – str

  • valueDefault – str

  • value – str

Return type

bool

The reader calls this function to report an attribute type declaration. Only the effective (first) declaration for an attribute is reported.

The reader passes the name of the associated element in eName and the name of the attribute in aName . It passes a string that represents the attribute type in type and a string that represents the attribute default in valueDefault . This string is one of “#IMPLIED”, “#REQUIRED”, “#FIXED” or an empty string (if none of the others applies). The reader passes the attribute’s default value in value . If no default value is specified in the XML file, value is an empty string.

If this function returns false the reader stops parsing and reports an error. The reader uses the function errorString() to get the error message.

PySide2.QtXml.QXmlDeclHandler.externalEntityDecl(name, publicId, systemId)
Parameters

Return type

bool

The reader calls this function to report an internal entity declaration. Only the effective (first) declaration is reported.
