General XML reader

Recommended Posts

dickep

OK, I looked around here and did not find what I think I am looking for.

What I want is a "generic" XML reader - something that will read a complete XML file and give me the nodes with their values in some sort of array. 

Does this sound OK?  I am not an XML guru nor a great programmer.  I just need to get any XML file and be able to parse and use the XML information.

Thanks

I understand that.  But, I am having a difficult time trying to see how to get this started.  I don't really "comprehend" the XML DOM functions so need some helping hands with that.

Does the XML DOM have the ability to just read the file and store the information like I think I need it to be stored - in array(s)?

Thanks

Thanks for the link.  It is, however, different in that it is looking at a "known" XML schema.  I want to be able to do any XML file. 

I am starting to code something but not sure where it may take me.

Still need some "guidance" on a true generic XML parser/reader.

@dickep did you take a look at that UDF - >XML DOM wrapper  I looked through it and I can see a function called

_AddFormat

It might be worth your while to have a look in that UDF.

couple of examples:

$oXML = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
$sXML = "<root><something><somethingelse>value</somethingelse></something></root>"
$oXML.loadXML($sXML)

$oNodes = $oXML.selectSingleNode("//something")
For $oNode In $oNodes.childnodes
    ConsoleWrite($oNode.text & @CRLF)
Next

$oNode = $oXML.selectSingleNode("//something/somethingelse")
ConsoleWrite($oNode.text & @CRLF)

if you are loading a file, use:

$oXML.Load("c:\your\file\here.xml")

Thanks.  Now how can I traverse through the next N number of items?  I got this to work for the first one, but it stopped after that.
