Xml nested

Hello,

i have got a XML File like this:

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
<Core>
  <Entries>
    <Name>Sample</Name>
    <Link>www.test.org</Link>
    <Comments>
      <Name>localhorsti</Name>
      <Text />
    </Comments>
  </Entries>
  <Entries>
    <Name>k</Name>
    <Link>www.sample.com</Link>
    <Comments>
      <Name>username</Name>
      <Text />
    </Comments>
    <Comments>
      <Name>author</Name>
      <Text />
    </Comments>
  </Entries>
</Core>

and now i want to get all the 'Comment' rows of the second 'Entries' row and set it to a DataSource.

How to do that ?
Thanks, Manuel

Hi,
use Xpath = "/Core/Entries/Comments[2]"

This is a exelent site of examples of XPath, take a look.
http://www.zvon.org/xxl/XPathTutorial/Output/example1.html

Other Way is use System.Xml.XmlDocument Class

XmlDocument xmldoc = new XmlDocument
xmldoc.load("YourXmlFile.xml")
xmldoc.SelectNodes("/Core/Entries/Comments").Item(1) or  xmldoc.SelectSingleNode("/Core/Entries/Comments[2]")
xmldoc.SelectSingleNode("/Core/Entries/Comments[2]").InnerXml <- Return Xml Node as string
