XML Parsing Need Help

Recommended Posts

DarkAqua

I have a XML file that i need assistance in parsing. Below is a snipping from the XML File:

<Tasks>
  <Task>
    <BeginDate>2015/08/15  01:27:45,4375 (0)</BeginDate>
    <MangaName>Kono S o, Mi yo! 
(Kono S o, Mi yo! 1 --&gt; Kono S o, Mi yo! 155 -  Just the Two of Them [End])</MangaName>
    <Website>MangaHere</Website>
    <SaveTo>F:\Manga\Kono S o, Mi yo!</SaveTo>
    <Status>Completed</Status>
    <Percent>100</Percent>
    <State>Stopped</State>
    <Queue>0</Queue>
    <Chapters />
  </Task>
  <Task>
    <BeginDate>2015/08/15  01:28:49,9415 (0)</BeginDate>
    <MangaName>Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari 
(Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari 1 -  A Royal Summoning --&gt; Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari 16 -  The Third Wave of Calamity)</MangaName>
    <Website>MangaHere</Website>
    <SaveTo>F:\Manga\Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari</SaveTo>
    <Status>Completed</Status>
    <Percent>100</Percent>
    <State>Stopped</State>
    <Queue>0</Queue>
    <Chapters />
  </Task>
</Tasks>

I have tried a couple of different ways but i haven't had any luck so far. I have messed with XML parsing with Rainmeter and Crystal Reports but im having difficulty with Auto-it. I need to parse the nodes <MangaName> and <Website> to a 2D Array with the <MangaName> as the first column and <Website> is the second column. Attached is the full XML File. 

Tasks.xml

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

If tags are constants you could do some desastrous as this:

#include <Array.au3>
Local $sData=FileRead("Tasks.xml")

Local $aData=StringSplit($sData,"<MangaName>",1)

_ArrayDisplay($aData)
Local $aNewArray[$aData[0]-1][2]
For $i=2 to $aData[0]
    $aNewArray[$i-2][0]=StringMid($aData[$i],1,StringInStr($aData[$i],"</MangaName>")-1)
    $aNewArray[$i-2][1]=StringReplace(StringSplit(StringMid($aData[$i],StringInStr($aData[$i],"<Website>")+9),@CRLF,1)[1],"</Website>","")

Next
_ArrayDisplay($aNewArray)

;_ArrayDisplay($res)
Local $array[UBound($res)/3][3]
For $i = 0 to UBound($array)-1 
    $array[$i][0] = $res[$i*3]  
    $array[$i][1] = StringReplace($res[$i*3+1], '&gt;', ">")
    $array[$i][2] = $res[$i*3+2]

      Hi All,
      This is purely an XML Language question. I need to understand how I can add a value/element in between another XML element. 
      Code below shows the XML file. The info tag has the elements already inserted.
      <Configuration xmlns="http://schemas.datacontract.org/2004/07/Modules.Reporting.DataContracts.LineItems" xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <GenConf> <Info>ID, Site, Name , Site_ID</Info> </GenConf> </Configuration> Now, I want to add a value from a node group into this code. Something like below. But the example below does not work.
      Any suggestions?
       
      <Configuration xmlns="http://schemas.datacontract.org/2004/07/Modules.Reporting.DataContracts.LineItems" xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <GenConf> <Info>ID, Site, a/@id, Name , Site_ID</Info> </GenConf> </Configuration> <ProductName> <a id="Windows Server"/> </ProductName>

      Hello guys,
       
      This XML things are driving me crazy...
      Please let me know how can I use the _XMLGetAttrib function... I've tried every possible way that I've read on the forum and I cannot succeed reading an attribute.
       
      The XML looks like bellow:
       
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <BATCH attr1= "aaa" attr2="bbb" attr3="ccc">
           <Node1 attr1="aaa" attr2="bbb" attr3="ccc" attr4="ddd" attr5="" attr6="eee" attr7="fff" attr8="ggg"/>
           <Node2 attr1="aaa" attr2="" attr3="" attr4="ddd"/>
           <Node3 attr1="" attr2="" attr3="ccc" attr4="" attr5="" attr6="eee"/>
           <Panel attr1="aaa" STATUS="BBB" attr3="ccc" attr4="ddd" attr5="" attr6="eee">
                <Node5 attr1="aaa" attr2="bbb" attr3="ccc" attr4="ddd" attr5="" attr6="eee" attr7="fff" attr8="ggg"/>
                .............................................................................................................................................................................
           </Panel>
      </Batch>
