Searching node in XmlNode[] in c#

10 New Member
I have an array of XmlNode[] which is returned after deserializing xml document. I have to search particlular XmlNode in the array based on the attribute "instrument " of Record XmlNode.

Sample node lookes like this
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <Record instrument="VOD-US,USD,NORM,R">
  2.   <Field name="variant" type="2">R</Field> 
  3.   <Field name="hi" type="5">19.28</Field>   
  4. </Record>
any help will be appreciated.

XmlNode seems to be part of the implementation of DOM in C# (of which I don't know anything), so you could be able to use DOM methods to check the attribute.

sorry I can't be of more help

Use an iterator for the nodelist, something like:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. foreach XmlNode node in the xmlNode[] {
  2.   XmlNode attr = node.Attributes.getNamedItem("instrument");
  3.   if (attr != null && attr.Value.Equals("VOD-US,USD,NORM,R")) 
  4.     do something
  5. } // end foreach
XMLNodeXmlNode Members (System.Xml)

XMLAttributeCol lectionXmlAttributeCol lection Members (System.Xml)

As of now I am doing in the same way as you specified. Here suppose I have 100 nodes I have to parse all the 100 nodes to get the last node. I was looking for something like we have predicate delegate.
Ex: Array.Find()

Is it possilbe in XmlArray[]

It would be possible if the attribute was a direct property of the xmlNode. Since the attribute node is contained within each of the XMLNode lists, I don't know of a better way to search through the list. How are you getting this XMLNode []array, (or XMLNodeList?)

If you can, Change the way the list is formed to get the attribute nodes instead of the element nodes. Then when you find the right attribute node, just go to its parent to get the Record node.

XPath is query langueage for XML. Using this we can query xml file
Please search net for usage of XPath.

In your case following is the XPath query which serves your purpose.
/Record[@instrument='VO D-US,USD,NORM,R']
