I am working on webservice project. When I pass an XML to webservice, it will return back Success OR Failure XML. I need to read the response XML and need to identity whether it is success or failure.

Requirements:-
If it is Success, need to read the value of 'ProjectID' from the response XML.
If it is failure, need to read the 'Error' message text

(Attached two XML files - response_failure.XML & response_success.XML)
response-success.xml
response-failure.xml

I know, we can use XmlDocument, XmlElement, XmlNode for this purpose in C#. But not clear about that. Also i have only less time to finish this project.

Could you please assist me by providing the C# code to read the response XML as mentioned above.

Highly appreciates the help that you could provide me.

Thanks
Raj

//failure-success.xml
            XmlNodeList list = xmldoc.SelectNodes("//informationStatus/*");
            string errMessage = list.Item(1).InnerText;

//response-success.xml
            XmlNodeList list = xmldoc.SelectNodes("//createUser/*");
            string projectID = list.Item(1).InnerText;

use the following code to load the xml into XmlDocument:

XmlDocument xmldoc = new XmlDocument();
            xmldoc.Load(@"<xml_file>");

Thanks sedqwick for your help! That worked.

To identity whether the XML returned is Success or Failure, we need first to read the value status="success" / status="fail"

How to read it ?

Thanks

Our Dev teams are like yours. They’re continually cranking out code for new features/bugs fixes, testing, deploying, testing some more, responding to production monitoring events and more. It’s complex. So, we thought you’d like to see what’s working for us.

here:

XmlNodeList list = xmldoc.SelectNodes("//informationStatus/@status");
            string status = list.Item(1).InnerText;
