I am getting the xml below returned from an HttpWebRequest
I want to ALWAYS read the first node below the <Result..." line.

How can I do that in VB?
In otherwords my variable would be

myVar = "MonitorStartResponse"

Can you post the code you are attempting to use? I suspect you are probably having an issue with namespaces and prefixes.

You might also try using the FirstChild property against the XmlElement you have populated with the <Result> node.

I'm strying to get the first "Child" after the <Resul..." middle section.

It could be the csta:MonitorStartResponse
It could be csta:EstablishedEvent
It could be anything
But it will always be the very first one.

Here's the actual XML.

<org.m5.api.v1.Response xmlns:m5="http://www.m5net.com/org/m5/data/v2/cti" xmlns:csta="http://www.ecma-international.org/standards/ecma-323/csta/ed5">
  <ErrorCount>0</ErrorCount>
  <Id>1</Id>
  <Result xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:type="org.m5.data.v2.cti.HostedConnectObject">
    csta:MonitorStartResponse>
      <csta:monitorCrossRefID>392</csta:monitorCrossRefID>
    </csta:MonitorStartResponse>
  </Result>
</org.m5.api.v1.Response>

As I mentioned...

Module Module1

    Sub Main()
        Dim xdoc As New Xml.XmlDocument()

        xdoc.Load("input.xml")

        Dim firstChildOfResult As Xml.XmlElement = xdoc.SelectSingleNode("//Result").FirstChild
    End Sub

End Module
