working with XML files

8 posts in this topic

I'm going to be messing around with a bunch of XML files shortly, but I know next to nothing about them.

I did a quick search through the help file and couldn't find anything (except some references to the _Word* UDF).

A search on here brought up _XMLDomWrapper.au3 which looks promising and I am looking into it now...

But I was wondering if anyone had other suggestions of things I should be looking at as well, even a link to a general XML primer would be helpful.

TIA,

[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible.

Depends on what you want to do with the XML.

I'll be parsing, adding, removing, and modifying entries (elements? sections? shrug... whatever you call them)

Elements.

It's usually best to work with XML in a tree-like format. This is easier to do in object oriented languages. Good luck though.

The XML UDFs are probably the easiest place to start.

There is a simple XML file

<root>

<data id="1">111</data>

<data id="2">222</data>

</root>

How to get data from "data" where "id" is "2"?

You can XPath it: /Root/Data[@id=2]/

I recall the function in XML DOM wrapper is XMLSelectNode.

Edit: Typo.
