Hi,

Within my XML file I have the following node;

<Type>Hardware</Type>

I would like to store "Hardware" from Type node as a string

How do I get this, I have attempted to do;

        Dim XmlDoc As New XmlDocument
        XmlDoc.Load(SourceFileName)

        Dim lstNodes As XmlNodeList = XmlDoc.GetElementsByTagName("Type")

        Dim node As XmlNode
        For Each node In lstNodes
            MessageBox.Show(node.ToString)
        Next

Try it with the InnerText property:

        Dim XmlDoc As New XmlDocument
        XmlDoc.Load("C:\Temp\Sample.xml")

        Dim lstNodes As XmlNodeList = XmlDoc.GetElementsByTagName("Type")

        For Each node As XmlNode In lstNodes
            MessageBox.Show(node.InnerText)
        Next

Note: I tested with the sample xml document, change the load statement to reflect your filename path again:

XmlDoc.Load("C:\Temp\Sample.xml")          to:

XmlDoc.Load(SourceFileName)
