How to fill a combo using XML !
Posted on 2002-03-04
I have never used XML but now I need to fill my combo in a project, at the client end using XML. The reason of thinking XML for this purpose is to save the network trip inorder to fill the combo, which can impact the efficency of the software.
The front end of the application is in VB, so I have following questions..
1. How I can put my data in XML on client side(lets assume its a two column table like Product_ID and Product_Name)
2. How I would access this XML Data to fill the combo box.
3. How I will update the XML file incase of any addition to the products list.
