#1 ·  Posted

I need to know encoding of  xml file from its declaration using some .method without need of turning object to text and second reading of file from disk

I tried some, but get only blank strings (no errors)

$oXML = ObjCreate("Msxml2.DOMDocument.6.0")
    $oXML.Async = False
    $oXML.ValidateOnParse = True
    $oXML.load($sPathToXML)

    $sEncoding = $oXML.Xml.XmlDeclaration.getAttribute("encoding").text
    ConsoleWrite("$sEncoding = "&$sEncoding & @CRLF)

    $sEncoding = $oXML.Xml.getEncoding.text
    ConsoleWrite("$sEncoding = "&$sEncoding & @CRLF)

    $sEncoding = $oXML.Xml.getCharacterEncodingScheme().text
    ConsoleWrite("$sEncoding = "&$sEncoding & @CRLF)

Loop through, and look for a specific node type...google to get what the exact id is for the node type.
