Posted on 2003-02-27

Last Modified: 2010-05-01
Using Visual Basic together with Ms Xml 4.0 SP1

with the following xml-file:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE data SYSTEM "-------Censored--------">
<error code="-3002804">
<string>WARNING: vault..proc_insertMSG. Message cannot be queued. Transmission is within 60 seconds of existing entry in queue.</string>

Now, i'm looking for ways to read the <string> , but strangely it works no matter what i try, but i can't read the error code itself

VB code i have sofar:

Dim doc As New DOMDocument40
doc.async = False
doc.validateOnParse = False
doc.resolveExternals = False
xmlPath = "temp.xml"
doc.Load xmlPath
message = doc.selectSingleNode("data").Text  '<-- still gives the whole line :S

Change this line:
message = doc.selectSingleNode("data").Text

message = doc.selectSingleNode("data/error/string").Text

It's not clear whether you want the string or the error code.  If you want the string, then acperkins' suggestion should work.  If you want the error code you need to use:
If Not oNode Is Nothing then
End If

I had a typo... change "default" to "code"...

If Not oNode Is Nothing then
End If
