I am parsing XML documents using MSXML_TLB. For example if the xml is

  <status code="63">On route to delivery branch</status>

i can get "On route to delivery branch" using
  oNodeList := oXMLDoc.selectNodes('//message');

But i don't know how to get the "code" value which is 63 for this example. if I use it like this
  oNodeList := oXMLDoc.selectNodes('//status );

it returns "On route to delivery branch"

thanks in advance

Try this
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);

  FDOM      : IXMLDOMDocument;
   amsg: string;
  FRootEL        : IXMLDOMElement;
  FEL   : IXMLDOMNode;
  AnyElement: string;
  aVariant: variant;

  amsg := memo1.text;
  FDOM := CoDOMDocument.Create;
  if not FDOM.loadXML(aMsg) then
   raise Exception.Create('Invalid XML message');

  AnyElement := 'status';
   FrootEL := FDOM.DocumentElement;
   FEl   := FrootEL.selectSingleNode('./' + AnyElement);

   if FEl <> nil  then
     aVariant :=  (FEl As IXMLDOMElement).getAttribute('code');

     if not varisNull(aVariant) then
