Hi

I wana add the new node at the end of all the nodes in an existing xml file. Let say i have special.xml file which has following nodes :

<HOTELS>
<HOTEL><DEST>Toronto</DEST></HTOEL>
<HOTEL><DEST>Alberta</DEST></HTOEL>
<HOTEL><DEST>London</DEST></HTOEL>
<HOTEL><DEST>Calgary</DEST></HTOEL>
</HOTELS>


i need to add the new node at the end and before </HOTELS> root element. I need to add the new <HOTEL> node with new <DEST> child node in it. I have a function named AddNode(). It has strNode variable in it. Just need to add the value of strNode in xml file. This function is already being called by button click event
HELP ME PLZ.

Best Regards
Shaukat

How about loading the xml file into a xml reader or string (excuse the lack of xml in .net knowledge) and then treat it as a large string?
myNewXML = myOldXML + myNewNode + '</HOTELS>

myOldXML would be the contents of the xml file minus the right 8 characters (</HOTELS>)
Probably a cleaner way using XPath or something but it's something to consider while waiting for the XML gurus to show up.

hi Waqar,
try this please
        XmlDocument xd = new XmlDocument();
        xd.Load("C:\\data.xml");
        XPathNavigator xn = xd.CreateNavigator();
        xn.MoveToFirstChild();
        xn.AppendChild("<HOTEL><DEST>India</DEST></HOTEL>");
        xd.Save("C:\\data.xml");

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
