My application reads a rss feed that contains posts by categories, and i have those categories pragmatically inserted in the code. What i want to know is how to read a rss feed and generate the categories for the tableview dynamically.

Best Regards.

create a class

public class RSSItem
{
    public string title {get;set;}
    public string link  {get;set;}
    public string description  {get;set;}
 }

 then use linq to get a collection of RSSItem

public List<RSSItem> items;
 XElement rssFeed = XElement.Load(url).Element("channel");
 items = (from Item in rssFeed.Elements("item")
                 select new RSSItem()
                 {
                     title = Item.Element("title").Value,
                     description = Item.Element("description").Value,
                     link = Item.Element("link").Value
                 }).ToList<RSSItem>();


Now,you can iterate over the collection  rssFeed using ForEach ,and get your desire format.
