Hi,

I have a XML file that I want to load all the child elements into a Dropdownlist. Can I do that and how?

If there are more than one of the same child elements I only want to only show one.

Thanks

Hi this will read a xml file and only populate the atribute CustName into your combo

      Dim testing As New DataSet

        testing.ReadXml("C:\SomeFolder\SomeXMLfile.xml")
       MyCombo.DataSource = testing.Tables(0)
       MyCombo.DisplayMember = "CustName" 'The value to be shown in the list.
       MyCombo.ValueMember = "CustName" 'The value that will return the SelectedValue property of the currently
       selected item.
