The code below works if I want to modify the information inside the tag, but how do I modify the CDATA for what looks to be an attribute?

I want to modify "DocInfo" CDATA, but can't seem to find the correct expression to place into SelectSingleNode function.

(see below code and sample input xml.)


using System.Xml;

XmlDocument xmldoc = new XmlDocument();
xmldoc.Load(xmlfilepath);
xmldoc.SelectSingleNode("Document/DocumentName").InnerText = "test";



<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<Document>
  <DocumentName><![CDATA[]]></DocumentName>
  <IndexCollection>
    <Index columnname="DocInfo"><![CDATA[]]></Index>
    <Index columnname="Somethingelse"><![CDATA[]]></Index>
  </IndexCollection>
</Document>
