How can I read an XML file in C# with this format?

<column name="Year"><![CDATA[2000]]></column>
<column name="Make"><![CDATA[Cadillac]]></column>
<column name="Model"><![CDATA[Deville]]></column>
<column name="Price"><![CDATA[$10,525]]></column>

Open in new window


I want to read the fields instead of parsing the entire XML and process each entry...

<column name="Year" data="<![CDATA[2000]]>" />
<column name="Make" data="<![CDATA[Cadillac]]" />
<column name="Model" data="![CDATA[Deville]]" />
<column name="Price" data="<![CDATA[$10,525]]" />

Open in new window


Now you can easily access "data" from the xml.

you can use DataSet.ReadXml Method for that
eg,

String MyXml = "<MyTable><ID>1</ID><ParentID>2</ParentID><Name>Test</Name></MyTable>";

StringReader SR = new StringReader(MyXml);

DataSet ds = new DataSet();
ds.ReadXml(SR);
