Query XML DOM Nodes (C-C++)
MSXML provides two DOM methods that allow you to query a node or a set of nodes in an XML DOM object:
SelectSingleNode. You specify the node or nodes of interest in an XPath expression, which is taken as the input to these methods.
In this C/C++ demonstration, we assume that you have some understanding of XPath expressions.
This project uses or creates the following files.
|Source: queryNodes.cpp||Selects both a single node and a node-set from a DOM object.|
|Resource: stocks.xml||An XML data file.|
|Output||When you build and run the queryNodes project, you should get this output in a console window.|
- Create a Win32 console application in Visual C++. For detailed instructions on how to do this, see Set Up My Visual C++ Project. Name the project queryNodesProj.
Next, we'll add the source code for the queryNodes project.
