I am having a heck of a time understanding how to manipulate xml entries.

basically what i have created is a test directory of xml files

these are for media center movies and im trying to create a genre consolidation program where i can either remove or change the xml information for the genres

i have attached my file structure and my code to this project

under btnRun_Click
you will see the loop that is completing searching for the genre matches
under cbAction.Text == "Change" and cbAction.Text == "delete"

for change
1 is for changing the information which i was thinking would be best done by removing the old genres first and then adding in the new genres

also i need to check to make sure the same genre isnt listed multiple times if it is to only leave 1 instance of it

for delete

this should only delete out the matches in the list

i have attached the whole project but since experts-exchange eliminates some file extentions here is a list of the ones that will need renamed once downloaded

I think more useful attachment would have been the xml file itself that you're planning to modify/delete entries from. Just put the xml file (at least a part of it) and tell us what needs to happen in each of the scenarios.

Don't you think this is too much work for both you and me? I mean, you took all the pain to rename each and every file and now I'll have to fish out this class that has the button click event that you're talking about. That's the reason why I suggested you to simplify your question. Post the xml, post your logic and tell what it is that you're trying to do and how far you've gone with it.

Please don't get me wrong. I'm very much willing to help you, but all I'm asking you is to ask a specific question that you have.
