The example below adds two attributes to the first element of the root element.

    doc         ,XML_DOC_TYPE
    root        ,XML_ELEM_TYPE
    elem        ,XML_ELEM_TYPE
    elemlist    ,XML_ELEMLIST_TYPE
    attr1       ,XML_ATTR_TYPE
    attr2       ,XML_ATTR_TYPE
    attrlist    ,XML_ATTRLIST_TYPE

; Get the list of all elements of root, then locate first element

    root = %xml_doc_getroot(doc)
    elemlist = %xml_elem_children(root)

    elem = %xml_elemlist_item(elemlist, 1)

; Create new attributes, put them into a list, and add it to the element

    attr1 = %xml_attr_create()
    xcall xml_attr_setname(attr1, "Height")
    xcall xml_attr_setvalue(attr1, "43inches")

    attr2 = %xml_attr_create()
    xcall xml_attr_setname(attr2, "Weight")
    xcall xml_attr_setvalue(attr2, "18lbs")

    attrlist = %xml_attrlist_create()
    xcall xml_attrlist_add(attrlist, attr1)
    xcall xml_attrlist_add(attrlist, attr2)

    xcall xml_elem_addattributes(elem, attrlist)
