Reading from XML specified by attribute

by Keenan838 » Fri Apr 05, 2019 4:55 am

I have the following XML file:

Code: Select all

<Categories>
<Category name="TopDown">
    <Path>http://localhost:8080/images/TopDown/Divx.png</Path>
    <Path>http://localhost:8080/images/TopDown/Blu-Ray.png</Path>
    <Path>http://localhost:8080/images/TopDown/Divx.png</Path>
    <Path>http://localhost:8080/images/TopDown/Divx.png</Path>
    <Path>http://localhost:8080/images/TopDown/Divx.png</Path>
    <Path>http://localhost:8080/images/TopDown/Divx.png</Path>  
</Category>
<Category name="SideScroll">
    <Path>http://localhost:8080/images/SideScroll/MediaMonkey.png</Path>
    <Path>http://localhost:8080/images/SideScroll/Miro.png</Path>
    <Path>http://localhost:8080/images/SideScroll/QuickTime.png</Path>
    <Path>http://localhost:8080/images/SideScroll/VLC.png</Path>
    <Path>http://localhost:8080/images/SideScroll/WinAmp.png</Path>
</Category>
In my c# code, I have a function that gets a string that represents the Category "name" attribute, and if that string equals to that attribute I'd like to get all the text between the "Path" tags. For Instance, if the function gets a string parameter that equals "TopDown" the output would be :

Code: Select all

http://localhost:8080/images/TopDown/Divx.png
    http://localhost:8080/images/TopDown/Blu-Ray.png
    http://localhost:8080/images/TopDown/Divx.png
    http://localhost:8080/images/TopDown/Divx.png
    http://localhost:8080/images/TopDown/Divx.png
    http://localhost:8080/images/TopDown/Divx.png
Thank you.
