Manipulating XML with C#

Here i am going to demonstrate how to parse through XML documents and iterate the node values and names in simple steps.

Step 1: Add the required name spaces

using System.Xml;
using System.Xml.XPath;
System.Xml contains classes related to Xml reading and writing and System.Xml.XPath namespace contains the classes that define a cursor model for navigating and editing XML information items as instances of the XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model.

Step2:Create a XMLText Reader and load the XML Document

XML Text reader provides a fast , non cashed forward only access to XML data where as XML Document object can be used to load an XML formated file.

Step 3 :Create an XML Node List and iterate the values.

Upon running the code you can see that the values got populated to the array list from the xml.
