Dataset.GetXML( ) method doesn't Return Null Values. Any Solution?

Hi All,

Thanks for u r Valuable postings.
Here is a Problem for me.

I need to reprsent the NULL value of a column in Database in an XML
File as follows.

<Employees>
<Employee>
<Name>John</Name>
</Addr>
<City>NewYork </City>
</Employee>
</Employees>

Here </Addr> represents a null field in Database.
But using Dataset.GetXML( ) method I am getting the XML O/p as follows.
<Employees>
<Employee>
<Name>John</Name>
<City>NewYork </City>
</Employee>
</Employees>

Can Any body help me from this situation?
Thanks in Advance
Regards
Nanda

Hi,

This is because it is containing NULL (DBNull.Value) - it is being
ignored.
Maybe, you can traverse for column having DBNull.Value & make it blank

Then, I guess it should emit XML the way you want

Hi, I am trying to use the GetXml() function of my DataSet, and its returning all the rows and their values correctly in Elements format. How can i change this default behaviour of the GetXml() function to return the embedded nodes as an Attribute of an entity and not ChildNodes, e.g. The DataSet's GetXml function returns like this <File> <FileName>some.xml</FileName>

I have run into a problem that I have not found an easy solution for. My data all resides in a dataset and we're using getxml to return the xml and send that on to the webserver for processing. It seems though that the getxml method always wants to create formatted xml (see example below). I don't want it like that and want it in a single line. I haven't been able to find an easy way to do this, because I can't just strip spaces/crlf...

I have a SQL2005 XML column I load into a DataSet. I then bind to a DataGrid. If I set an asp:Literal text value to the DataSet.GetXml() when I first load it into the DataSet, it displays correctly. If I later try to display the XML content in the asp:Literal control, then I get "<NewDataSet />". Why is that? Why can't I get the actual XML back from the DataSet? I'm new to DataSets, so I'm probably just missing something basic. Here's...
