I believe it is .xml property of the DOMDocument.
I don't know net,but the objects are the same.

var xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument");
var currNode;
xmlDoc.async = false;
xmlDoc.load("books.xml");
currNode = xmlDoc.documentElement.childNodes.item(0);
alert(currNode.xml);

You also can use xmlDoc.xml

soferstam: he's talking VB.NET, you're talking VB6.

Use the xmldocument.outerXML property.  It is functionally equivalent to the old mxsml2.DomDocument.xml property.

Objects are not the same in .NET

You will have to use different classes in .NET

this is what it looks like in c-charp:

//c-sharp
//declare instance of xml doc
XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
//load xml into memory
doc.Load("c:\\contacts.xml");
//get hold of the root node
doc.GetElementsByTagName("contact");
//convert xml into string variable using the innerxml method
string a = doc.InnerXml.ToString();
//display in console window
Console.WriteLine(a);

'vb
Dim doc As System.Xml.XmlDocument
doc = New System.Xml.XmlDocument()

doc.Load("c:\contacts.xml")
doc.GetElementsByTagName("contact")

Dim strXML As String
strXML = doc.InnerXml.ToString()
Console.WriteLine(strXML)

Have fun...
