Return value


XML_SUCCESS if the tag name is set successfully.



The XML element instance for which a tag name will be set. (XML_ELEM_TYPE)


The tag name string value to set for the specified element. The maximum length is 256 characters. (a)


%XML_ELEM_SETNAME defines the tag name for the specified XML element. The tag name is the text that appears in the begin and end tags required to delimit each element. If you are assembling Synergy data in XML format, one of the first things you should do after you create the XML document is to set the name of the root element with %XML_ELEM_SETNAME.

This function is defined as ^VAL.


The example below sets the tag name for the root element to weather‑report. The begin and end tags would be <weather‑report> and </weather‑report>, respectively.

xcall xml_elem_setName(root, "weather-report")
