xml xmldocument node

Below I have xml and class I created but I do not know how to capture the value. Check the "?"

public DirDomain.Member MemberInfo(string ID)
            #region Locate the XML File
            string filename = DomainCompany.memberXmlFileDir;
            #region Create Instance
            //create new instance of XmlDocument
            XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
            #region Load the File
            //load from file
            DirDomain.Member mm = new DirDomain.Member();        
            XmlNode selectedMember = doc.DocumentElement.SelectSingleNode("//Member[ID='" + ID + "']");
            foreach (XmlNode xn in selectedMember)
                string mytype = ? //I want to get <Type> </Type> value
            return mm;

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

Firstly a loop won't work as you are only returning a single node, not a XmlNodeList. If you are only interested in the Type node then you can change your code to:
XmlNode selectedType = doc.DocumentElement.SelectSingleNode("//Member[ID='" + ID + "']/Type");
string mytype = selectedType.InnerText;

Open in new window

Otherwise you would use:
XmlNode selectedMember = doc.DocumentElement.SelectSingleNode("//Member[ID='" + ID + "']");
string mytype = selectedMember["Type"].InnerText;

Open in new window
