You might try
http://www.microsoft.com/Mind/0798/XML.HTM
but it might be a bit too much. In any event you can class wrap the ActiveX object and call the methods documented for automation (ie: use the ASP/JScript samples).

I can understand your frustration. I'm also a C++ programmer. But the msxml ActiveX component which comes with IE 5 (or can be downloaded form almost anywhere) is specifically designed to be used as an automation object and consequently all the examples I have seen are VB examples. So I had to either use it via Automation in C++, or class wrap the thing, or use it in VBA. The latter I chose, since it was actually simpler! I'm sorry I can't help you further. C++ programmers may become a dying breed.

If you download and read the artical I have pointed to you will have a C++ code example.  It is a very simple example and it shouldn't take too long to get to grips with it.  It is too big and pointless to upload the code here.

I didn't want to say this before, cwques, but since you have quoted it twice, I get "The page you're looking for has been moved or removed from the site" when I click your link.

hi didou,

Hope this might help you out..
it has worked for me

IXMLDOMDocument xmldoc;
CString str="c:\\portfolio.xml";
VARIANT fname;
fname.vt=VT_BSTR;
fname.bstrVal=str.AllocSysString();
OleInitialize(NULL);  

//Create an instance of XMLDOM object
CString ProgID("Microsoft.XMLDOM.1.0");
try
{
xmldoc.CreateDispatch(ProgID,NULL);
}
catch(CException *e)
{
  OleUninitialize();
}
if (xmldoc.load(fname))
{
xmlnode = xmldoc.GetDocumentElement();
if(xmldoc.hasChildNodes)
{
node1 = xmlnode.GetFirstChild();
while (node1 != NULL)
{
if(node1.hasChildNodes)
{
node2=node1.GetFirstChild();
while (node2 != NULL)
{
///////////
AfxMessageBox(node2.GetNodeName());
AfxMessageBox(node2.GetText());
///////////
node2=node2.GetNextSibling();
}
}
///////////
AfxMessageBox(node1.GetNodeName());
AfxMessageBox(node1.GetText());
///////////
node1=node1.GetNextSibling();
}
}
}

This is a sample for you...
if you can give me your mail id ..i will send you the sample portfolio.xml..by which you can test this sample..

bye good luck..
