Hi,

I have a form that allows a user to enter details about their location that I want to save to an xml file so they dont have to renter the details each time. This way I can set it to save multiple location details in future.

The problem I have is I dont know how to write the details to an xml file.

The form has textboxes for:

Location
Name
Telephone Number

I'm wanting to set a button to write these to an xml file so it would look like..

<site>
<location>New york</location>
<name>Paul</name>
<phone>00000000</phone>
</site>

Can anyone show me how I can go about this?

Thanks,
Paul.

I tried downlaoding the source files but it wasn't compatible with vb.net.
