Searching fields within XML


Recommended Posts

I have created an app that allows me to save server names as field values and other information associated with their nodes. (example below)

<Servers>
    <ServerInfo>
        <Server_Name>MyServerName</Server_Name>
        <User>user_name</User>
        <Password>0x8534C1E508D4CF29AC17</Password>
    </ServerInfo>
</Servers

I am trying to use "_XMLNodeExists" from "_XMLDOMWrapper.au3" to search for existing server entries by field value. (Sorry if my XML terms are not quite right) I didn't quite follow how to search and I am not sure if this function can perform how I expect it to...

My attempt 

_XMLNodeExists('//Servers/ServerInfo/Server_Name/MyServerName')

Any suggestions how I might go about searching my XML file? I had thought of just searching as plain text.

This header is not complete.

when you focus on function declaration:

.....
Func _XMLNodeExists(ByRef $objDoc, $strXPath)
.....

Then you find that you miss one parameter ;)

Interesting... your version of "_XMLNodeExists" appears to be different than what I have...

If I create a test script that only looks for the node name, it returns the number of matching nodes. My test script:

#include <_XMLDOMWrapper.au3>

$searchVal = 'MyServer'
_XMLFileOpen(@ScriptDir&"\Servers.xml")

$srchRes = _XMLNodeExists('//Servers/ServerInfo/Server_Name')

ConsoleWrite("Results: "&$srchRes&@CRLF)

This seems to return similar results as "_XMLGetNodeCount". I am looking for field value search results.

I take this function snippet from: 

Global Const $_XMLUDFVER = "1.0.3.98"

But you can try to look here: XMLWrapperEx.au3 - BETA 

If I create a test script that only looks for the node name, it returns the number of matching nodes. My test script:

#include <_XMLDOMWrapper.au3>

$searchVal = 'MyServer'
_XMLFileOpen(@ScriptDir&"\Servers.xml")

$srchRes = _XMLNodeExists('//Servers/ServerInfo/Server_Name')

ConsoleWrite("Results: "&$srchRes&@CRLF)

This seems to return similar results as "_XMLGetNodeCount". I am looking for field value search results.

This is correct, as in this element:
 

<Server_Name>MyServerName</Server_Name>

"MyServerName" is value so you can not check like this:

_XMLNodeExists('//Servers/ServerInfo/Server_Name/MyServerName')

as there is no element MyServerName. 

EDIT: 

If you want to get value then you should use _XMLGetValue(...)

Thank you for your replies @mLipok, @jdelaney. Your suggestions gave me and an idea and reminded me of some steps I had taken in the past. Below is my initial groundwork for my solution that may be useful for others. If there are suggestions for improving my methods, let me know. :)

#include <_XMLDOMWrapper.au3>
#include <array.au3>

Local $aSrvInf = _ReadXMLFile(), $tmp

$tmp = _ArraySearch($aSrvInf,"MyServerName",0,0,0,0,1,0) ;Search for server name in column designated for server names
ConsoleWrite("Found match at "&$tmp&@CRLF) ;Show the row number the match was found at


Func _ReadXMLFile() ;Create an array with the values stored in the server information XML
Local $nodCnt, $c
If Not FileExists(@ScriptDir&"\servers.xml") Then
    ConsoleWrite("Unable to open servers.xml. Please be sure it is in the same directory as the script."&@CRLF)
    Exit
EndIf

If not _XMLFileOpen(@ScriptDir&"\servers.xml") Then
    ConsoleWrite("Error opening the 'servers.xml' file")
Else
    $nodCnt = _XMLGetNodeCount("//ServerInfo")
    If $nodCnt = -1 Then
        ConsoleWrite("There was a problem reading the servers.xml file. Please check the file."&@CRLF)
        Exit
    EndIf
    ConsoleWrite("There are "&$nodCnt&" ServerInfo nodes"&@CRLF)
    Local $aServInfo[$nodCnt][3]
    For $c = 1 to $nodCnt
        $aServInfo[$c-1][0] = _XMLGetChildText('//ServerInfo['&$c&']/Server_Name')[1]
        $aServInfo[$c-1][1] = _XMLGetChildText('//ServerInfo['&$c&']/User')[1]
        $aServInfo[$c-1][2] = _XMLGetChildText('//ServerInfo['&$c&']/Password')[1]
    Next
    _ArrayDisplay($aServInfo)
    Return($aServInfo)
EndIf

EndFunc

This searches and XML file with this format:

<Servers>
    <ServerInfo>
        <Server_Name>MyServerName</Server_Name>
        <User>user_name</User>
        <Password>0x8534C1E508D4CF29AC17</Password>
    </ServerInfo>
</Servers>

I'd go this route:

#include <Array.au3>
$xml = "<Servers>" & _
"<ServerInfo><Server_Name>MyServerName1</Server_Name><User>user_name1</User><Password>0x8534C1E508D4CF29AC17a</Password></ServerInfo>" & _
"<ServerInfo><Server_Name>MyServerName2</Server_Name><User>user_name2</User><Password>0x8534C1E508D4CF29AC17b</Password></ServerInfo>" & _
"<ServerInfo><Server_Name>MyServerName3</Server_Name><User>user_name3</User><Password>0x8534C1E508D4CF29AC17b</Password></ServerInfo>" & _
"</Servers>"
Global Enum $iServerName, $iUser, $iPassword, $iUBound



Local $oXML = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
$oXML.LoadXML($xml)
$oServers = $oXML.selectNodes("//ServerInfo")
Local $a
For $oServer In $oServers

    If IsArray($a) Then
        ReDim $a[UBound($a)+1][$iUBound]
    Else
        Local $a[1][$iUBound]
    EndIf

    $a[UBound($a)-1][$iServerName] = $oServer.selectSingleNode("./Server_Name").text
    $a[UBound($a)-1][$iUser] = $oServer.selectSingleNode("./User").text
    $a[UBound($a)-1][$iPassword] = $oServer.selectSingleNode("./Password").text
Next
_ArrayDisplay($a)

      I was asking @eltorro serveral times for any support  for XML DOM wrapper (COM) - with no success  
          So I took matters into my hands ..... I want to present XMLWrapperEx.au3 - BETA Version
      Want to join to the project ?
       
      Here is some description:
      ; #INDEX# ======================================================================================================================= ; Title .........: XMLWrapperEx.au3 ; AutoIt Version : 3.3.10.2++ ; Language ......: English ; Description ...: Functions to use for reading and writing XML using msxml. ; Remarks .......: BETA Version ; Author ........: mLipok ; Version .......: "1.1.1.01" ; _XML_MiscProperty_UDFVersion() #CS This UDF is created on the basis of: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/19848-xml-dom-wrapper-com/ For this reason, I attach also the last known (to me) previous version ($_XMLUDFVER = "1.0.3.98" _XMLDomWrapper_1.0.3.98_CN.au3 ) For the same reason I continue to recognize the achievements of the work of my predecessors (they are still noted in each Function header). . . . . !!!!!!!!! This is BETA VERSION (all could be changed) !!!!!!!!! . . . WORK IN PROGRES INFORMATION: For now 2015-09-01 the descripion (Function Header) can not entirely correctly describe the function. TODO: in many places I used "TODO" as a keyword to find what should be done in future . I want to: PREVENT THIS: The unfortunate nature of both the scripts is that the func return results are strings or arrays instead of objects. .     I want to: USE THIS CONCEPT:     .   All function should use Refernce to the object as first Function parameter     .   All function should return in most cases objects. There should be separate functions to Change Object collection to array     .   All function should use COM Error Handler in local scope.     .   All function should return @error which are defined in #Region XMLWrapperEx.au3 - @ERROR Enums     .    All function should have the same naming convention     .    All variables should have the same naming convention     .    There should not to be any Global Variable - exception is $g__oXMLDOM_Events     .   It should be possible easy to use XML DOM Events     .        https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms764697(v=vs.85).aspx     .   It should be possible easy to Debug     .    Ultimately, you should be able to do anything with your XML without having to use your own Error Handler. #CE

      Hello,
      once more I have to see, that my knowledge about XML is too poor, even to use this existing XML UDF
      If it should be a better approach to make use of StringRegEx, or maybe a totally different approach, any suggestions will be mostly appreciated.
       
      I downloaded the ZIP XML_1.1.1.13 and tried to get how to use it from the sample AU3 files included in that ZIP file, well, I don't really get it😵
       
       
      What I want to do:
      My mobile phone's backup contain all the contacts in an XML file. This is an example of such a file, backupinfo.xml, shortened to show just one fictive entry:
       
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <ContactRecords> <contact> <structuredName> <displayName>Max Mustermann</displayName> <givenName>Max</givenName> <familyName>Mustermann</familyName> <prefixName /> <middleName /> <suffixName /> <phoneticGivenName /> <phoneticMiddleName /> <phoneticFamily /> </structuredName> <organization> <company>Schlosserei Mustermann GmbH</company> <department /> <title /> </organization> <phones> <phone> <number>07652 881 8181</number> <type>home</type> <customLabel /> </phone> <phone> <number>0 800 435 2758</number> <type>work</type> <customLabel /> </phone> <phone> <number>+49 160 4321 222</number> <type>mobile</type> <customLabel /> </phone> </phones> <emails /> <addresses /> <ims /> <WebSites /> <Events /> <note /> <nickName /> <photo /> <netPhone /> <groups> <group> <groupName>Ungrouped</groupName> </group> </groups> </contact> </ContactRecords>  
      Basically I want to search my mobile's contacts for phone numbers to, to see, what contact they belong to. Propably it will make the task much more easy, when standardizing the mobile's contact XML to hold all numbers in "international-notation-without-any-whitespaces" (thats no problem):
       
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <ContactRecords> <contact> <structuredName> <displayName>Max Mustermann</displayName> <givenName>Max</givenName> <familyName>Mustermann</familyName> <prefixName /> <middleName /> <suffixName /> <phoneticGivenName /> <phoneticMiddleName /> <phoneticFamily /> </structuredName> <organization> <company>Schlosserei Mustermann GmbH</company> <department /> <title /> </organization> <phones> <phone> <number>+4976528818181</number> <type>home</type> <customLabel /> </phone> <phone> <number>+498004352758</number> <type>work</type> <customLabel /> </phone> <phone> <number>+491604321222</number> <type>mobile</type> <customLabel /> </phone> </phones> <emails /> <addresses /> <ims /> <WebSites /> <Events /> <note /> <nickName /> <photo /> <netPhone /> <groups> <group> <groupName>Ungrouped</groupName> </group> </groups> </contact> </ContactRecords>  
      What I would like to get from the XML file as a result, e.g. searching the phone number "+491604321222"
      Present in XML  or not (true) if present then return the values for... type (mobile) givenname (Max) familyname (Mustermann) company (Schlosserei Mustermann GmbH) optional: Other node names and their values within that contact, when not "empty" (like in this examle <emails /> or <middlename />)  
      The values from #2 - #6 would be perfect when returned in a 2D Array, Col0 = name, Col1 = value.
      Regards, Rudi.
