The Xml Csv Reader provides several properties for specifying whether the file contains column names or not, and if not what XML element names to use instead and whether to return the columns as XML elements or attributes and so on. Xml Node Reader returns an Xml Reader interface over an Xml Node tree.The Xml Csv Reader implements the Xml Reader interface so you can use it to load an Xml Document and/or Data Sets or perform other kinds of pipelined XML processing. The Xml Node Writer does the complement to this, namely, it builds an Xml Node tree as a response to calls to the Xml Writer interface. NET Framework's set of classes and associated tools for manipulating XML data can be woven together to form an impressive array of options for constructing XML processing solutions. NET back in February 2002, people have been busily building various extensions and tools on top of these frameworks.NET Frameworks provide a powerful set of classes for manipulating XML data. Most of these tools are available for download from The following example, loads the HTML from into an Xml Document and queries it using XPath expression for the headlines and then prints out the URL's found in those headlines. Select Nodes(query)) Talking about legacy data, not only is HTML a common source of potential XML, but files (other wise known as tab delimited files) are also very common.The Xml Csv Reader provides support for reading files and returning the data as XML.Infer Schema option on the Read Xml method, however, the XSD Inference tool is smarter and supports a lot more of XSD, and is not limited to just producing "relational" schemas for the Data Set class to consume.In fact, it is likely it will produce schemas that the Data Set class cannot consume.
It now produces a report including a tally of each type of element found in the document.This is handy when someone has a class that can write to an Xml Writer, but does not provide an Xml Reader pull model interface. You'll probably find the command line executable version of this algorithm very handy.A perfect example of such a class is the Xml Serializer. Talking about pretty printing, one thing that is not so easy with the Xml Text Writer is formatting attributes so they appear on separate lines because the Xml Text Writer does not provide this option.The following example uses the Xml Node Writer to write object data into an Xml Document. Fortunately there is an Xml Attribute Formatter, which is built into the ppxml command line tool, that provides this functionality.The following code shows how to set this up: Notice that this approach to loading an Xml Document from a serialized object graph is far more efficient that writing the XML to a String Writer then parsing the XML via an Xml Text Reader. The Xml Attribute Formatter is implemented by subclassing Xml Text Writer and overriding the.
