Hi Experts

We are attempting to use the Campaign Monitor API. We can successfully retrieve information. But need advice and examples of how to turn that information into ASP variables.

Below is an example of the code that is delivered back that needs to be manipulated.

Thanks for your time.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
    <soap:Body>
        <Client.GetListsResponse xmlns="http://api.createsend.com/api/">
            <Client.GetListsResult xsi:type="ArrayOfList">
                <List>
                    <ListID>d4945449063b88ca30326b11fb2b6ef3</ListID>
                    <Name>List1</Name>
                </List>
                <List>
                    <ListID>4bc44de19a3830d5f332abd032a7da7f</ListID>
                    <Name>List2</Name>
                </List>
                <List>
                    <ListID>09c0f936874d9e132b5155082242acc3</ListID>
                    <Name>List3</Name>
                </List>
            </Client.GetListsResult>
        </Client.GetListsResponse>
    </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>

that is delivered back to you from the web service?  Usually a SOAP Envelop is sent to the service...

I guess you could process it anyways, like normal XML...

try out the below:


<%
'---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
' The following is tested and is working @ http://manager.zipcm.com/temp/test1.asp
'---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
tmpString = ""
tmpString = tmpString & "<?xml version=""1.0"" encoding=""utf-8""?>"
tmpString = tmpString & "<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap=""http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"" xmlns:xsi=""http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"" xmlns:xsd=""http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"">"
tmpString = tmpString & "    <soap:Body>"
tmpString = tmpString & "        <Client.GetListsResponse xmlns=""http://api.createsend.com/api/"">"
tmpString = tmpString & "            <Client.GetListsResult xsi:type=""ArrayOfList"">"
tmpString = tmpString & "               <List>"
tmpString = tmpString & "                    <ListID>d4945449063b88ca30326b11fb2b6ef3</ListID>"
tmpString = tmpString & "                    <Name>List1</Name>"
tmpString = tmpString & "                </List>"
tmpString = tmpString & "                <List>"
tmpString = tmpString & "                    <ListID>4bc44de19a3830d5f332abd032a7da7f</ListID>"
tmpString = tmpString & "                    <Name>List2</Name>"
tmpString = tmpString & "                </List>"
tmpString = tmpString & "                <List>"
tmpString = tmpString & "                    <ListID>09c0f936874d9e132b5155082242acc3</ListID>"
tmpString = tmpString & "                    <Name>List3</Name>"
tmpString = tmpString & "                </List>"
tmpString = tmpString & "            </Client.GetListsResult>"
tmpString = tmpString & "        </Client.GetListsResponse>"
tmpString = tmpString & "    </soap:Body>"
tmpString = tmpString & "</soap:Envelope>"
Set objXML = CreateObject("Microsoft.FreeThreadedXMLDOM")
	objXML.async = False
	boolExists = objXML.LoadXML(tmpString) '<-Change to .Load(YourFilePath)
	If boolExists Then
		Set objRoot = objXML.selectSingleNode("//Client.GetListsResult")
			ReDim ListID(objRoot.ChildNodes.Length - 1)
			ReDim Name(objRoot.ChildNodes.Length - 1)
			For i = 0 To objRoot.ChildNodes.Length - 1
				ListID(i) = objRoot.ChildNodes.Item(i).ChildNodes.Item(0).Text
				Name(i) = objRoot.ChildNodes.Item(i).ChildNodes.Item(1).Text
			Next : i = Null
		Set objRoot = Nothing
	Else
		Response.WRite("There is no respnse.")
	End If
Set objXML = Nothing
'A Test To See if we are getting the results
If IsArray(ListID) And IsArray(Name) Then
	For i = LBound(ListID) To UBound(ListID)
		Response.Write("Node: " & i & " | ListID: " & ListID(i) & " | Name: " & Name(i) & "<br />")
	Next : i = Null
End If

Thank you very much. Hopefully, I can take your example and apply it to other parts of the API.
