My attempt so far: To no avail.

$oXml = ObjCreate("Msxml2.DOMdocument.3.0")


$oXml.Load(StringTrimRight($sFilePath,4) & ".xml")

If @error Then MsgBox(0,"xmltest","load failed! error-" & @error)

$oXmlroot = $oXml.documentElement

For $oXmlNode In $oXmlroot.childNodes

$items = $oXmlNode.getElementsByTagName('Name');

for $item In $items

TrayTip("MKSD","Elements by TagNameSpace " & $item.text,2)

Sleep(5 * 1000)


;$doctype = $oXmlNode.doctype();

TrayTip("MKSD", "Name " & $oXmlNode.text,2)

Sleep(2 * 1000)

I am tyring to retrieve two records from this file

<property name="Genre">Comedy-drama</property>


<property name="Title">Six Feet Under</property>

I cannot find a way (other than reading the file line by line) to access br "Genre" and "Title" . Maybe some kind soul will give a hint, or point me in the right direction.
