Getting SAX Parser attributes value

I am parsing XML from the web using Android. The code below shows a sample of the XML. The problem I'm having is I can't get the string value of the item tag. When I use

name = attributes.getQName(i);
it outputs the name, not the value of the attribute.

<weatherdata>
<timetags>
<item name="date">
<value>20/04/2012</value>
<unit/>
<image/>
<class>dynamic</class>
<description>The current date</description>
</item>


Any help is much appreciated.

Answer

use

attributes.getValue(i);

instead of

attributes.getQName(i);

because as doc says :

getQName :Return an attribute's qualified (prefixed) name.

getValue : Look up an attribute's value by qualified (prefixed) name.

see this example for getting attribute name and value
