Examples

Example #1 Get document namespaces

<?php

$xml 
= <<<XML
<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
<people xmlns:p="http://example.org/ns">
    <p:person id="1">John Doe</p:person>
    <p:person id="2">Susie Q. Public</p:person>
</people>
XML;
 
$sxe = new SimpleXMLElement($xml);

$namespaces $sxe->getDocNamespaces();
var_dump($namespaces);

?>

The above example will output:

array(1) {
   ["p"]=>
   string(21) "http://example.org/ns"
}

Example #2 Working with multiple namespaces

<?php

$xml 
= <<<XML
<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
<people xmlns:p="http://example.org/ns" xmlns:t="http://example.org/test">
    <p:person t:id="1">John Doe</p:person>
    <p:person t:id="2" a:addr="123 Street" xmlns:a="http://example.org/addr">
        Susie Q. Public
    </p:person>
</people>
XML;
 
$sxe = new SimpleXMLElement($xml);

$namespaces $sxe->getDocNamespaces(TRUE);
var_dump($namespaces);

?>

The above example will output:

array(3) {
  ["p"]=>
  string(21) "http://example.org/ns"
  ["t"]=>
  string(23) "http://example.org/test"
  ["a"]=>
