I have the following xml file and need to loop through and process the js and css nodes in two steps. First I want to loop through the js, then the css.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<files>
  <js>/_layouts/dir1/exportandsendwidget.js</js>
  <js>/_layouts/dir2/fm_grid_utils.js</js>
  <css>/_layouts/1033/test.css</css>
  <css>/_layouts/1033/test2.css</css>
</files>

Hi jackjohnson44;

The following Linq queries will return the need values from the XML data.

// Open the XML document from the path given
XDocument xdoc = XDocument.Load("Path & filename");

// Get the js values as a List of strings
List<string> jsResults = xdoc.Descendants("js")
                             .Select( js => js.Value ).ToList();

// Get the css values as a List of strings
List<string> cssResults = xdoc.Descendants("css")
                              .Select( css => css.Value ).ToList();

You then can use a for each loop to process the individual values of each list.

Try something like:
            XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
            doc.LoadXml("Your xml");

            foreach(XmlNode node in doc.SelectNodes("//js"))
            {
                // do something
            }

            foreach(XmlNode node in doc.SelectNodes("//css"))
            {
                // do something
            }
