PySide.QtXml.QXmlLocator class provides the XML handler classes with information about the parsing position within a file.
The reader reports a PySide.QtXml.QXmlLocator to the content handler before it starts to parse the document. This is done with the QXmlContentHandler.setDocumentLocator() function. The handler classes can now use this locator to get the position ( PySide.QtXml.QXmlLocator.lineNumber() and PySide.QtXml.QXmlLocator.columnNumber() ) that the reader has reached.
Returns the column number (starting at 1) or -1 if there is no column number available.
Returns the line number (starting at 1) or -1 if there is no line number available.
