C# XML Response

dcass asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I'm working in C# - can send the request and it's accepted, but don't know how to get the response.
I've tried a lot of different things, but would ideally like to get the response back where I can tell if it was a success or failure - that's all I need.  This code attached always get the same message whether it's an error or not.  I can send the request if it helps.  If its' easier to do it in a dataset, please feel free - anything will help.

bool SuccessCode = false;
					bool ErrorCode = false;
					string ResponseData = "";
						string resultcode = "Success";
					string ResultCode = "Success";
					string detailsuccess="true";
					string detailerror = "false";
					string detailresultcode = "Success";
					string ResponseMsg = "";
						string ResponseDetailMsg = "";
						string srefNum = "";
						int processorRefNum= 0;
						int processorResultCode = 0;
						int processorMsg = 0;
						int refID = 0;
						string ErrorMsg = "";
					string GData = "<responses xmlns='http://www.selectpayment.com/RTGResponse.xsd' error='false' resultCode='"+resultcode+"'>"+
        "<response requestID='"+reqID+"' refNum='"+srefNum+"resultCode='"+ResultCode+"' success='"+SuccessCode+"' error='"+ErrorCode+"'>" +
		"<actualDate>"+ReqDate+"</actualDate>" +
		"<responseMessage>"+ResponseMsg+"</responseMessage>" +
		"<originatedAs>ach</originatedAs>" +
			"<details>" +
			"<detail success='"+detailsuccess+"' error='false' name='Shoot Me' resultCode='"+detailresultcode+"'>" +
				"<responseMessage>"+ResponseDetailMsg+"</responseMessage>" +
				"<processorRefNum>"+processorRefNum+"</processorRefNum>" +
				"<processorResultCode>"+processorResultCode+"</processorResultCode>" +
				"<processorMessage>"+processorMsg+"</processorMessage>" +
			"</detail>" +
		"</details>" +
		//	<data>
		//		<the>
		//			<merchantPassedIn/>
		//		</the>
		//	</data>
	"</response>" +
												ASCIIEncoding Rencoding = new ASCIIEncoding();
						byte[] DataBytesR = Rencoding.GetBytes(GData);
						System.Net.WebRequest WebResponse2 = System.Net.HttpWebRequest.Create("https://ssl.selectpayment.com/rtg/xmlgateway.aspx");
						WebResponse2.Method = "GET";
						WebResponse2.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";
						System.IO.StreamReader Rstream = new System.IO.StreamReader(WebResponse2.GetResponse().GetResponseStream() );
						StringBuilder sbXMLResponse = new StringBuilder();
						string strLineXMLResponse;
						while((strLineXMLResponse = Rstream.ReadLine()) != null)
								if(strLineXMLResponse.Length > 0 )
							string sXML = sbXMLResponse.ToString();
