I have this javascript code, but it only retrieve all MarkMethod nodes that met the condition of MarkObjectType=TEXT
How do i change the code to include also MarkObjectText,  MarkInfo nodes in the result?

var MatchingNodes=theRoot.selectNodes("/ArrayOfMarkTemplate/MarkTemplate/MarkingObjects/MarkObject[MarkObjectType='TEXT']/MarkMethod/
 var outMarkHtml2 ="<table id='MarkText2'>"
                           for (i=0;i<MatchingNodes.length;i++){
                         
                            outMarkHtml2+= "<tr><td>" + MatchingNodes.item(i).text + "</td></tr>";
                         
                           }
                           outMarkHtml2+="</table>";    
                           document.write(outMarkHtml2);
                            }


This is my XML :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ArrayOfMarkTemplate>
  <MarkTemplate>
    <MarkType>MARKTYPE001</MarkType>
    <ImageId>854</ImageId>
    <MarkingObjects>
      <MarkObject>
        <MarkObjectType>TEXT</MarkObjectType>
        <ObjectText>TEXT001</ObjectText>
        <MarkMethod></MarkMethod>
        <MarkInfo>Info</MarkInfo>
      </MarkObject>
      <MarkObject>
        <MarkObjectType>TEXT</MarkObjectType>
        <ObjectText>TEXT002</ObjectText>
        <MarkInfo>Info</MarkInfo>
       </MarkObject>
      <MarkObject>
        <MarkObjectType>TEXT</MarkObjectType>
        <ObjectText>TEXT003</ObjectText>
       <MarkInfo>Info001</MarkInfo>      
      </MarkObject>
      <MarkObject>
        <MarkObjectType>GRAPHIC</MarkObjectType>
        <ObjectText>GRAPHIC001</ObjectText>
       <MarkInfo>Info004</MarkInfo>
      </MarkObject>
    </MarkingObjects>
  </MarkTemplate>
  <MarkTemplate>
   ......
  </MarkTemplate>

</ArrayOfMarkTemplate>

Hi sherly,
> theRoot.selectNodes("/ArrayOfMarkTemplate/MarkTemplate/MarkingObjects/MarkObject[MarkObjectType='TEXT']/MarkMethod/

you can use the union symbol "|"

theRoot.selectNodes("//MarkingObjects/MarkObject[MarkObjectType='TEXT']/MarkMethod |
//MarkingObjects/MarkObject[MarkObjectType='TEXT']/MarkObjectText |
//MarkingObjects/MarkObject[MarkObjectType='TEXT']/MarkInfo")


Cheers!

Hi Gertone, this returns me all MarkObject of every MarkElement with MarkObjectType='TEXT'. What if I want to display all the MarkObject with MarkObjectType='TEXT' of the first MarkTemplate only?

MarkTemplate/

theRoot.selectNodes("//MarkTemplate[1]/MarkingObjects/MarkObject[MarkObjectType='TEXT']/MarkMethod |
//MarkTemplate[1]/MarkingObjects/MarkObject[MarkObjectType='TEXT']/MarkObjectText |
//MarkTemplate[1]/MarkingObjects/MarkObject[MarkObjectType='TEXT']/MarkInfo")
