Detailed Description

Receive notification of lexical events.

This is an extension handler for that provides lexical information about an XML document. It does not provide information about document content. For those events, an application must register an instance of a ContentHandler.

The order of events in this interface is very important, and mirrors the order of information in the document itself. For example, startDTD() and endDTD() events will occur before the first element in the document.

Member Function Documentation

virtual void LexicalHandler::comment ( const XMLCh *const   chars,
const unsigned int  length 
) [pure virtual]

Receive notification of comments.

The Parser will call this method to report each occurence of a comment in the XML document.

The application must not attempt to read from the array outside of the specified range.

Parameters:
chars The characters from the XML document.
length The number of characters to read from the array.
Exceptions:
SAXException Any SAX exception, possibly wrapping another exception.

Implemented in DefaultHandler.

virtual void LexicalHandler::endCDATA (  )  [pure virtual]

Receive notification of the end of a CDATA section.

The SAX parser will invoke this method at the end of each CDATA parsed.

Exceptions:
SAXException Any SAX exception, possibly wrapping another exception.

Implemented in DefaultHandler.

virtual void LexicalHandler::endDTD (  )  [pure virtual]

Receive notification of the end of the DTD declarations.

The SAX parser will invoke this method at the end of the DTD

Exceptions:
SAXException Any SAX exception, possibly wrapping another exception.

Implemented in DefaultHandler.

virtual void LexicalHandler::endEntity ( const XMLCh *const   name  )  [pure virtual]

Receive notification of the end of an entity.

The SAX parser will invoke this method at the end of an entity

Parameters:
name The name of the entity that is ending.
Exceptions:
SAXException Any SAX exception, possibly wrapping another exception.

Implemented in DefaultHandler.

virtual void LexicalHandler::startCDATA (  )  [pure virtual]

Receive notification of the start of a CDATA section.

The SAX parser will invoke this method at the start of each CDATA parsed.

Exceptions:
SAXException Any SAX exception, possibly wrapping another exception.

Implemented in DefaultHandler.

virtual void LexicalHandler::startDTD ( const XMLCh *const   name,
const XMLCh *const   publicId,
const XMLCh *const   systemId 
) [pure virtual]

Receive notification of the start of the DTD declarations.

The SAX parser will invoke this method at the start of the DTD

Parameters:
name The document type name.
publicId The declared public identifier for the external DTD subset, or null if none was declared.
systemId The declared system identifier for the external DTD subset, or null if none was declared.
Exceptions:
SAXException Any SAX exception, possibly wrapping another exception.

Implemented in DefaultHandler.

virtual void LexicalHandler::startEntity ( const XMLCh *const   name  )  [pure virtual]

Receive notification of the start of an entity.

The SAX parser will invoke this method at the start of an entity

Parameters:
name The name of the entity that is starting.
Exceptions:
