Displaying XML

P: n/a
There have been lots of posts on this topic, but I haven't been able
to apply any of the suggestions to my situation.

I have an .aspx page with a form on it that has several submit buttons
on it. Clicking a button will cause a web service action that returns
XML. I would like to display this XML response on the page with the
form. I know I can display XML in an IFRAME by pointing its source to
an XML file. But I'm streaming the XML dynamically. I also saw a
suggestion to have the IFRAME's src point to the aspx page that loads
the XML. Again, that won't work because I'm displaying the response
to a form action in the IFRAME.

If someone could give me an example or pointers to displaying XML in
an IFRAME (or any other way) on a page with a form in response to a
form action, I would appreciate it. BTW, when I say "displaying XML",
I mean having IE render it the same as if you open an XML file
directly in IE.

Thanks,
Carole

Actually, that will work, as long as you set the Response.ContentType of the
ASPX page to "text/xml". Because the file requested has an .aspx extension,
you must inform the browser that it is not HTML, but XML.
