Dears,

I have a SharePoint picture library list and i got the corresponding XML file which contains the data like

- <xml xmlns:s="uuid:BDC6E3F0-6DA3-11d1-A2A3-00AA00C14882" xmlns:dt="uuid:C2F41010-65B3-11d1-A29F-00AA00C14882" xmlns:rs="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:rowset" xmlns:z="#RowsetSchema">
- <s:Schema id="RowsetSchema">
- <s:ElementType name="row" content="eltOnly" rs:CommandTimeout="30">
- <s:AttributeType name="ows_SelectedFlag" rs:name="Selection Checkbox" rs:number="1">
  <s:datatype dt:type="ui1" dt:maxLength="4" />
  </s:AttributeType>
- <s:AttributeType name="ows_DocIcon" rs:name="Type" rs:number="2">
  <s:datatype dt:type="string" dt:maxLength="512" />
  </s:AttributeType>
- <s:AttributeType name="ows_NameOrTitle" rs:name="Name" rs:number="3">
  <s:datatype dt:type="string" dt:maxLength="512" />
  </s:AttributeType>
- <s:AttributeType name="ows_ImageSize" rs:name="Picture Size" rs:number="4">
  <s:datatype dt:type="i4" dt:maxLength="4" />
  </s:AttributeType>
- <s:AttributeType name="ows_FileSizeDisplay" rs:name="File Size" rs:number="5">
  <s:datatype dt:type="i4" dt:maxLength="4" />
  </s:AttributeType>
- <s:AttributeType name="ows_RequiredField" rs:name="Required Field" rs:number="6">
  <s:datatype dt:type="string" dt:maxLength="512" />
  </s:AttributeType>
- <s:AttributeType name="ows_Details" rs:name="Details" rs:number="7">
  <s:datatype dt:type="string" dt:maxLength="512" />
  </s:AttributeType>
  </s:ElementType>
  </s:Schema>
- <rs:data>
  <z:row ows_SelectedFlag="0" ows_DocIcon="jpg" ows_NameOrTitle="Desert.jpg" ows_ImageSize="1024" ows_FileSizeDisplay="845941" ows_RequiredField="English/it/SilverLightLibrary/Desert.jpg" ows_Details="Details here" />
  <z:row ows_SelectedFlag="0" ows_DocIcon="jpg" ows_NameOrTitle="SD.jpg" ows_ImageSize="754" ows_FileSizeDisplay="122248" ows_RequiredField="English/it/SilverLightLibrary/SD.jpg" ows_Details="SD Details here" />
  </rs:data>
  </xml>

Here I wanted to get the Name of Image,  Details of image by using C# code, for that I wrote the code inside a foreach loop to fetch all data from this XML


 void webClient_DownloadStringCompleted(object sender, DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs e)
        {
            XDocument xDoc = XDocument.Parse(e.Result);
           
            foreach (XElement xMovieInfo in xDoc.Descendants("rs:data"))
            {
                try
                {
                    MovieTrailer trailer = new MovieTrailer(xMovieInfo);
                    trailers.Add(trailer);
                }
                catch { }
            }
        }

Here this code throwing an error : The ':' character, hexadecimal value 0x3A, cannot be included in a name.


My aim is how to get the image name, image path and image details from the above XML file by using C# code.


Thanks in advance
Regards
