Hi Experts,

I have the below XML file which I cannot change!

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<Motorola xmlns:Falcon='http://www.domain.com/RFID/Readers/Config/Falcon' xmlns='http://www.domain.com/RFID/Readers/Config/Falcon'>
<Config>

</Motorola >

How can I read in and/or set the value of Motorola.Config.CommConfig.IPAddr?  I tried this but it doesn't seem to work:

                   XmlDocument document = new XmlDocument();
                    document.Load(path);
                    XmlElement xmlRoot = document.DocumentElement;

                    XmlNode node = xmlRoot.SelectSingleNode("/Config/CommConfig");

Open in new window


node comes back as null! Eventhough, I can see that Motorola has a child node called Config

Thanks

Use  an XmlNamespaceManager, and assign an artificial prefix when selecting. Also, adjust your XPath--you are not accounting for the root node:

e.g.

using System.Xml;

namespace ConsoleApplication52
{
    class Program
    {
        private static string path = "input.xml";

        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            XmlDocument document = new XmlDocument();
            XmlNamespaceManager mgr = new XmlNamespaceManager(document.NameTable);

            mgr.AddNamespace("pre", "http://www.domain.com/RFID/Readers/Config/Falcon");
            document.Load(path);

            XmlElement xmlRoot = document.DocumentElement;
            XmlNode node = xmlRoot.SelectSingleNode("//pre:Config/pre:CommConfig", mgr);
        }
    }
}
