Recommended Posts

luckyluke

Hi all, Please help me with this code, i'm trying to use _XMLGetPath

#include <_XMLDomWrapper.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

$oOXml = _XMLFileOpen("C:\direct.xml")

$retval = _XMLGetPath('//feed/entry')
_ArrayDisplay($retval)

Error Retrieving: //feed/entry

No matching node(s)found!

Here is xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/css" media="screen" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~d/styles/noitems.css"?>

With the XML simplified like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<feed>

This works:

#include <_XMLDomWrapper.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

$debugging = True
$iRET = _XMLFileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\Test1.xml")
ConsoleWrite("$iRET = " & $iRET & "; @error = " & @error & "; @extended = " & @extended & @LF)
$retval = _XMLGetPath('//feed/entry')
ConsoleWrite("$retval = " & $retval & "; @error = " & @error & "; @extended = " & @extended & @LF)
If IsArray($retval) Then _ArrayDisplay($retval)

I guess you could start from there and then plug the namespace stuff back in until you figure out which one is confusing it.

:D

It doesn't work for my xml file, cause in your xml file you use <feed> but in my original file is

<feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" xmlns:openSearch="http://a9.com/-/spec/opensearch/1.1/" xmlns:georss="http://www.georss.org/georss" xmlns:gd="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005" xmlns:feedburner="http://rssnamespace.org/feedburner/ext/1.0" gd:etag="W/&quot;DUcCRHs7fSp7ImA9WxBTGEk.&quot;">

How can i fix it?

Hello,

I've the same problem with google calendar and after 20 days of research, i've recently found THE solution. This solution work with google calendar and google feeder.

The librairie "_XMLDOMWrapper" use version 6 of Msxml2 ("Msxml2.DOMdocument.6.0"), but version 4,5 and 6 of MsXml are compliant with W3C. Version 1, 2 and 3 are compliant with....microsoft Xml specifications only ;-) and don't need namespaces.

So for version compliant with W3C you MUST declare and use NAMESPACES. Your code work if you write :

$debugging = True
$iRET = _XMLFileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\fichier.xml",'xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" xmlns:openSearch="http://a9.com/-/spec/opensearch/1.1/" xmlns:georss="http://www.georss.org/georss" xmlns:gd="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005" xmlns:feedburner="http://rssnamespace.org/feedburner/ext/1.0"')
ConsoleWrite("$iRET = " & $iRET & "; @error = " & @error & "; @extended = " & @extended & @LF)
$retval = _XMLGetPath('//atom:feed/atom:entry')
ConsoleWrite("$retval = " & $retval & "; @error = " & @error & "; @extended = " & @extended & @LF)
If IsArray($retval) Then _ArrayDisplay($retval)

It's work with my version AutoIt3.3.4.0 of autoit, on my computer :See my console.

>Running:(3.3.4.0):C:\PF\AutoIt3\autoit3.exe "C:\Users\TOLA\Downloads\0Progs\0Autoit\0DATA\GCalendar\LireXml.au3"   
$iRET = 1; @error = 0; @extended = 0
GetPath list length:1
parent feed

parent #document

Path node> /feed/entry

$retval = ; @error = 0; @extended = 0

Be carefully, i've add 'xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom"......' for namespaces declaration and "$retval = _XMLGetPath('//atom:feed/atom:entry')" for xml tag prefix. I'm not sure for XPath, maybe someone can help us for make good XPath research !?!?

You must take the same namespaces found in the root tag, the "feed" tag in Google Data, but just take xmlns attributs.

Excuse my poor english :D .

@FourLC: Thanks for the info! I didn't understand how it could work at first, because the "atom" namespace is not declared in the XML document. I finally figured out that the DEFAULT namespace was associated with the URI "http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom", so you could have named it anything when opening the file (here, I called it "dingleberry"):

#include <Array.au3>
#include <_XMLDOMWrapper.au3>

$debugging = True

$iRET = _XMLFileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\Test1.xml", 'xmlns:dingleberry="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom"')
ConsoleWrite("$iRET = " & $iRET & "; @error = " & @error & "; @extended = " & @extended & @LF)

$retval = _XMLGetPath('//dingleberry:feed/dingleberry:entry')
ConsoleWrite("$retval = " & $retval & "; @error = " & @error & "; @extended = " & @extended & @LF)

If IsArray($retval) Then _ArrayDisplay($retval)

This is not only true for the default namespace. The same cross reference happens with the others. In this example I opened it with an "applepie" namespace for "http://a9.com/-/spec/opensearch/1.1/":

#include <Array.au3>
#include <_XMLDOMWrapper.au3>

$debugging = True

$iRET = _XMLFileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\Test1.xml", 'xmlns:dingleberry="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" xmlns:applepie="http://a9.com/-/spec/opensearch/1.1/"')
ConsoleWrite("$iRET = " & $iRET & "; @error = " & @error & "; @extended = " & @extended & @LF)

$retval = _XMLGetPath('//dingleberry:feed/applepie:totalResults')
ConsoleWrite("$retval = " & $retval & "; @error = " & @error & "; @extended = " & @extended & @LF)

If IsArray($retval) Then _ArrayDisplay($retval)

:D
