I have a string that contains a xml file and want to read this with xml reader - the xmlreader.create command seems to want a file path?
If there a way to read the string into the xmlreader?.

Try:

Dim xml As String = "<root><somechild><somegrandchild></somegrandchild></somechild></root>"
Dim sReader As New System.IO.StringReader(xml)
Dim xReader As System.Xml.XmlReader = System.Xml.XmlReader.Create(sReader)

Open in new window
