Hi salvobellino95, welcome to the forum.

To work with XML in Autoit, you best check the following UDF:

With this UDF you can load the xml and use Xpath to retrieve the data you want.

Where do you get the error ?

It works for me - i get 12 in the msgbox.

I am guessing you need to specify the full path to the file , like :

$obj.load('c:test.xml')

Thx skin27Juvigi, i don't know xpath as a consequence i prefer a dom contact javascript-like, and the file path is correct

the error was the name of the object, it works for me with MSXML v 6

Use this instead.

$oXML=ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLDOM")


IEbyXPATH-Grab IE DOM objects by XPATH IEscriptRecord-Makings of an IE script recorder ExcelFromXML-Create Excel docs without excel installed GetAllWindowControls-Output all control data on a given window.
