I am writing c# classes to deserialize xml file.
I am not able to write a class for the part below :
The problem is that OrderLine exists more then once and i want to deserialize order line to an array or something.

Any help will be appreciated

**********************************************************
<ORDER>
<OrderLine>
                        <LineNumber>1</LineNumber>
                        <Product>

How about:


public class Order
    {
 
        private List<OrderLine> _orderLineList = new List<OrderLine>();
 
        public List<OrderLine> OrderLineList 
        {
            set {_orderLineList = value; }
            get { return _orderLineList; }
        }
    }
 
//Or
 
public class Order
    {
 
        private List<OrderLine> _orderLineList = new List<OrderLine>();
 
        public void AddOrderLine(Order order)
        {
         this._orderLineList.Insert(index,orderLine.LineNumber)
        }
 
        public Order AddOrderLine(int index)
        {
         return this._orderLineList[index]);
        }
        
        //add other accessor/modifier methods as appropriate
 
    }
 
//Didn't check this in a compiler so there might be spelling mistakes etc.

Some nasty errors in there, this version is better.
public class Order
    {
 
        private List<OrderLine> _orderLineList = new List<OrderLine>();
 
        public void AddOrderLine(OrderLine orderLine)
        {
         this._orderLineList.Insert(orderLine.LineNumber,orderLine)
        }
 
        public Order GetOrderLine(int index)
        {
         return this._orderLineList[index]);
        }
        
        //add other accessor/modifier methods as appropriate
 
    }

This is what happens when answering questions while being on the phone ;)
public class Order
    {
 
        private List<OrderLine> _orderLineList = new List<OrderLine>();
 
        public void AddOrderLine(OrderLine orderLine)
        {
         this._orderLineList.Insert(orderLine.LineNumber,orderLine)
        }
 
        public OrderLine GetOrderLine(int index)
        {
         return this._orderLineList[index]);
        }
        
        //add other accessor/modifier methods as appropriate
 
    }

If you are looking for a tutorial on xml deserialization in C# I'm not going to get into that myself. You can find loads of these on the web:

http://mehranikoo.net/CS/archive/2007/02/05/SerialisationAndEncodingInWCF.aspx
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.xml.serialization.xmlserializer.deserialize(VS.71).aspx

or someone else here might help you.

I was merely giving a suggestion in regards to your class structure based on your statement: "I am not able to write a class for the part below".

Yes i do understand but i want a class which can be serialized and deserialized.
When i read xml it should straight away be deserialized so that i can take data from it.
