I am using Visual Basic .NET. Here is my sample XML file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<content>
      <header>
            <title>This is a test</title>
      </header>
      <item>
            <title>Item title test</title>
            <description>Here is a description of an item</description>
            <name>here is a file name</name>
      </item>
      <item>
            <title>Item 2 title</title>
            <description>Here is a description of 2</description>
            <name>here is 2's file name</name>
      </item>
</content>

I am parse the file fine but now I want to append it so I can add a new 'item' to the file. I am fairly new to XML and Visual Basic .NET. So how would I add a new item with title="Hello World", description="This is a test" and name="VB"? And finally save the XML file. Code would help.

Thank you for your help.

You could to it with something like:

        Dim doc As New XmlDocument()
        doc.Load(xmlPath)

        Dim newItem As XmlNode
        Dim newNode As XmlNode

        newItem = doc.CreateElement("item")

        newNode = doc.CreateElement("title")
        newNode.InnerText = "Hello World"
        newItem.AppendChild(newNode)

        newNode = doc.CreateElement("description")
        newNode.InnerText = "This is a test"
        newItem.AppendChild(newNode)

        newNode = doc.CreateElement("name")
        newNode.InnerText = "VB"
        newItem.AppendChild(newNode)

        doc.DocumentElement.AppendChild(newItem)
        doc.Save(xmlPath)
