xml_set_default_handlerSet up default handler


xml_set_default_handler(XMLParser $parser, callable $handler): true

Sets the default handler function for the XML parser parser.



Der XML-Parser


Wenn null oder eine leere Zeichenkette übergeben wird, wird der Handler auf seinen Standardzustand zurückgesetzt.

Wenn handler vom Typ callable ist, wird das Callable als Handler gesetzt.

Wenn handler vom Typ string ist, kann es der Name der Methode eines Objekts sein, das mit xml_set_object() gesetzt wurde.

The signature of the handler must be:

handler(XMLParser $parser, string $data): void
Der XML-Parser, der den Handler aufruft.
data contains the character data. This may be the XML declaration, document type declaration, entities or other data for which no other handler exists.


Gibt immer true zurück.

For anyone who was also wondering what kind of events this function actually handles:

it's used in cases when an XML comment is found or an additional declaration like an xml-stylesheet. In such cases the data argument contains the whole string as it is, for example:

<!-- this is a comment -->
<?xml-stylesheet title="mystyle" type="text/xsl" href="style.xsl" ?>

it seems to me that in PHP5 the function defined as default-handler (using xml_set_default_handler()) doesen't get passed the cdata anymore:

xml_set_element_handler($this->parser, 'parseSTART', 'parseEND');
xml_set_default_handler($this->parser, 'parseDEFAULT');
function parseSTART() { ... }
function parseEND() { ... }
function parseDEFAULT() { ... }

under PHP5, parseDEFAULT will NOT get passed any cdata, but unter PHP4 it will. at least that's my take on the strange stuff (not) happening after migrating to PHP5.

my solution was to add a xml_set_character_data_handler($parser, 'parseDEFAULT'). it worked for me.

I have the same issue using two installation of PHP5: on accepts to use the default handler while the other only uses the character_data one.

Maybe a configuration problem...
