Hi all,

I am using a VB.NET client to communicate with an ASP.NET web service. I am able to send an XML request via xmlHTTP and get a response back which I can display using xmlHTTP.responseXML.xml.

Whats the best way to parse this response from the server. I am trying to use xmlTextReader but it requires an xml file or a stream or a URL. What I have is xmlHTTP.responseXML. How can I use xmlTextReader function to parse xml from the responseXML. Or what are the alternatives available.

Dim reader As XmlTextReader = New XmlTextReader(xmlHTTP.responseXML.xml)

gave the following error

 Overload resolution failed because no accessible 'New' can be called without a narrowing conversion:
    'Public Sub New(url As String)': Argument matching parameter 'url' narrows from 'System.Object' to 'String'.
    'Public Sub New(input As System.IO.TextReader)': Argument matching parameter 'input' narrows from 'System.Object' to 'System.IO.TextReader'.
    'Public Sub New(input As System.IO.Stream)': Argument matching parameter 'input' narrows from 'System.Object' to 'System.IO.Stream'.
