How to get node using XMLDocument and update value

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


This is my XML.

<xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16">
    <x> test value 1 </x>
    <y> test value 2</y>

        <x> test value 3</x>
        <y> test value 4</y>

                <x> test value 5</x>
                <y> test value 6 </y>




The actual XML is a deep hierarchy same way above that has so may <objA> and <objB>.

Please remember, I have to use XMLDocument only, not XDocument.

Now, I have to find a particular <objA> where <x> = "test value 5" and update its <y> to "some new value".

and then save that whole XMLDocument so that it is updated.

Can someone please tell me how can I achieve this using XMLDocument?


Thanks in advance,

XMLDocument, problem reading Node.




I am doing the following:


System.Net.WebRequest myRequest = System.Net.WebRequest.Create("http://www.atlantawithkid.com/feed/"); 
System.Net.WebResponse myResponse = myRequest.GetResponse(); 
System.IO.Stream rssStream = myResponse.GetResponseStream(); 
System.Xml.XmlDocument rssDoc = new System.Xml.XmlDocument(); 
System.Xml.XmlNodeList rssItems = rssDoc.SelectNodes("rss/channel/item"); 
System.Xml.XmlNode rssDetail; 
string sRssDescription;  
rssDetail = rssItems.Item(0).SelectSingleNode("description"); 
if (rssDetail != null) 
    sRssDescription = rssDetail.InnerText; 

However, when I read the "description" node and view the InnerText, or the InnerXML, the string is different than in the original XML document.

The string returned has and ellipses and the data is truncated. However, in the original XML document there is data that I can see.

Is there a way to select this node without the data being altered?

The original XML <description> node is as follows:

			<description xmlns:cf="http://www.microsoft.com/schemas/rss/core/2005" cf:type="html">
				<div class="tweetmeme_button" style="float:right;margin-le

Replace node contents using xmldocument




Attempting to replace the contents of a node, but not having much luck..

I need to look at my Keywords node, if it has the word 'test,' in it then replace it with ""

Essentially I'm trying to delete one of the keywords - they will always have a comma after each word as well.

So I'm trying to say in code: For any elements that is in the department Claims, get the Keywords & if it contains the string 'test,' replace it with nothing.


My elements look like this:

    <Link Type="Page" Target=""><![CDATA[]]></Link>

..additional elements just like this one..


My code like this:


SQL 2008:Peer 2 Peer Replication: Update-Update Conflict on the same node


My environment is comprising of 2 SQL servers setup with P2P replication in SQL 2008, 2 Web servers connect to only one SQL server at a time and make changes to the published tables and 2 Application servers which connects to both the SQL servers all the time but they only read data.

We chose P2P since my app servers are in different locations which read data from both the SQL servers and we use it as HA solution.

Since we are changing data at only one SQL server, thought we should never get update-update conflicts but we are now on the same node.

A conflict of type 'Update-Update' was detected at peer 3 between peer 1 (incoming), transaction id 0x0000000000725ca2 and peer 1 (on disk), transaction id 0x00000000007259e9 (Source: MSSQLServer, Error number: 22815)

We are making changes only at Server A and Server B is my backup server.

I made a varchar field updated in 1 row on a table in server A then it gets replicated to Server B
then I made the same field updated for 160 rows on the same table in Server A then it gets replicated to Server B
then I reverted back the change made to the field on all 160 rows on the same table in Server A then my replication failing with Update-Update conflict.

I'm not sure whats causing this because I'm not making any change

Update the name of an XML node using XPath?

Hello, I have a table in an SQL Server database which contains a column of datatype XML. I wonder if it is possible to update the name of a node in that table using an XPath expressions?
The XML file stored in this column looks something like this:
and I want to update the nodename "Misspelled" and set it to "Correct". Is this possible to do this with an XPath expression or what it is the best way to do this?
After the update I want the XML to look like this:
As you can see it is the name of the node that I want to replace and not the node value.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

ASP.Net Gridview Edit Update Cancel Commands

In ASP.Net 2.0, GridView Control also provides the functionality to edit and update the data retrieved from the database using CommandField template. You can cancel the action using Cancel Command of the CommandField. GridView consists of events that can be used to perform the actions like edit, update and cancel upon the Data items displayed in the ASP.Net GridView Data Control.

How to format and update GridView and DataGrid rows using JQuery

The behavior described in this question is as expected. When you set text of a cell in grid, it directly affects HTML that is going to be rendered. When you set text value of a cell, it means that you are setting innerText of the cell. The column that GridView creates for command fields (Edit, Delete and Select) are a (anchor) or button elements. So you can see what will happen if you set text value in that cell. It will wipe out those link or button controls and replace them with simple text string.

Update Vs SystemUpdate

Many of you might noticed that share point ListItem has Update() method as well as SystemUpdate().

What is the difference between these two methods and why MOSS has two different APIs for updating an ListItem

SqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery() returns -1 when doing Insert / Update / Delete

Sometimes you end up with a return value of -1 when using the SqlClient.SqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery method.

Why is that?

Well, the ExecuteNonQuery method is there for statements for changing data, ie. DELETE / UPDATE /INSERT, and the returned value are the number of rows affected by that statement.

When checking the documentation we can see that there are some conditions that return -1.

For UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE statements, the return value is the number of rows affected by the command.

When a trigger exists on a table being inserted or updated, the return value includes the number of rows affected by both the insert or update operation and the number of

rows affected by the trigger or triggers. For all other types of statements, the return value is -1. If a rollback occurs, the return value is also -1.

>>>How to update multiple rows of gidview by one click



I want to add multiple rows of a gridview if the data for multiple fields are same.

Idea for this is that a user may search a record with some parameter e.g. Sector, plot.

For example 15 records being displayed in gridview.

There should be checkbox before every row and if user wants to update Plot and Flat No that is same for 10 rows out of 15 so he will check the rows and update.

For this a dialog box should appear asking for the parameter i.e. Plot and Flat or something else next time may be it will be City or country. Moreover, there is already an Edit button to update records, when user click it another page open for the record to be updated and whatever he wants to update, it updates.

Hope everone understand the scenario.

I don't want to disturb the already provided Edit functionality and want to provide same record to be updated.

Any idea in this regard would be appreciated.
