Pasing XML Document on CE


I've a XML Document with a structur like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <test1 name="Kalender" bgimage="Menu2">
    <control id="1" event="My1_Click" xy="1" name="Raume" active="Pic2o" type="1" />
    <control id="2" event="My2_Click" xy="2" name="Kalender" active="Pic1o" type="1" />
    <control id="3" event="My3_Click" xy="3" name="Einnstellungen" active="Pic3o" type="1" />
  <test2 name="Raeume" bgimage="Menu">
    <control id="1" event="My1_Click" xy="1" name="Raume" active="Pic1o" type="1"/>
    <control id="2" event="My2_Click" xy="2" name="Kalender" active="Pic2o" type="1" />
    <control id="3" event="My3_Click" xy="3" name="Einnstellungen" active="Pic3o" type="1" />
  <test name="Test" bgimage="Menu">
    <control id="1" xy="1" name="Raume" type="2" width="50" height="100"/>
    <control id="2" xy="2" name="Kalender" type="3" width="250" height="20"/>
    <control xy="3" name="Einnstellungen" type="4" width="100" height="20"/>
    <control id="4" event="My1_Click" xy="2" name="Kalender" active="Pic2o" type="1" />

To access the nodes at the moment I use:
private static XmlDocument screens = new XmlDocument();
screens.Load(Globals.inipath + "screens.xml");
// Access node I need
XmlNodeList nodes = screens.SelectNodes("screens/test/control");
// Get Attributes
foreach (XmlNode node in nodes)
int ty = Convert.ToInt32(node.Attributes["type"].Value);
                switch (ty)
                case 1:
                    ta = node.Attributes["event"].Value;
                 case 2:
                    wi = node.Attributes["width"].Value;

Yes it works, but I've ever depending from the ID to select what Attributes I've to read.

Is there a way to access any Attribute included by a loop like XMLTextReader (MoveToNextAttribute) can do?
For sure I could complete change to XMLTextReader but I think than I've to miss SelectNodes.

Is it possbile to combinate both?
I'm developing with the CF 2.0 and can't upgrade it.

I don't quite understand that sentence. You can explain ine German if you wish.

Secondly you select all control nodes and select the type attribute, then select on its value.

Node.Attributes is a NamedNodeMap which is a combination of an iterator (with item, nextNode and reset) and getQualifiedItem and getNamedItem methods. So if you can explain what you want to do exactly, it will be possible to do it.

Ok, Deutsch ist leichter ...
Also, jeder Control Eintrag hat ja eine unterschiedliche Anzahl an Attributen, diese heissen nun auch wiederum anders (mal event="", andere haben width="" usw.)

Mit dem XMLTextReader könnte ich das ja in einer Schleife durchlkaufen, müßte aber ebenso vorher meinen Knoten suchen (while (reader.Read()) während ich mit SelectNodes ja direkt entsprechenden Knoten anspreche (obwohl das intern wohl auch nichts anderes machen wird, als diesen in einer Schleife zu suchen).
Also was ich suche ist eigentlich folgend Möglichkeit:
nodes = screens.SelectNodes("screens/" + room + "/control");
foreach (XmlNode node in nodes)
                     foreach(attribute in irgendwas)
Node.attributes returns a NamedNodeMap which supports an iterator. The iterator will return nodes (of type attribute). The NamedNodeMap was introduced so that one could directly access the attribute nodes without have to get each individual node. So it goes :-

      foreach (XMLNode attNode in Node.Attributes)
