Hi there,

Thanks for looking in my problem.My problem is rectified,the problem was server side page (default.aspx)default Html content was appended to the responsexml content.
that's why it was showing Null value. in javaScript file.I removed html part in design part of server page(default.aspx) and now it is working fine.

One's Again Thanks a lot.
