[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example creates a XmlDocument object and uses the GetElementsByTagName method and the resulting XmlNodeList to display all the book titles.

[Visual Basic] 
Imports System
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Xml

public class Sample

  public shared sub Main()

    Dim doc as XmlDocument = new XmlDocument()
     ' Get and display all the book titles.
     Dim root as XmlElement = doc.DocumentElement
     Dim elemList as XmlNodeList = root.GetElementsByTagName("title")
     Dim i as integer
     for i=0  to elemList.Count-1
  end sub
end class

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample
  public static void Main()
     XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
     // Get and display all the book titles.
     XmlElement root = doc.DocumentElement;
     XmlNodeList elemList = root.GetElementsByTagName("title");
     for (int i=0; i < elemList.Count; i++)

#using <mscorlib.dll>
#using <System.Xml.dll>
using namespace System;
using namespace System::IO;
using namespace System::Xml;

int main()
     XmlDocument* doc = new XmlDocument();
     // Get and display all the book titles.
     XmlElement* root = doc->DocumentElement;
     XmlNodeList* elemList = root->GetElementsByTagName(S"title");
     for (int i=0; i < elemList->Count; i++)

The example uses the file, 2books.xml, as input.

<!--sample XML fragment-->
  <book genre='novel' ISBN='10-861003-324'>
    <title>The Handmaid's Tale</title>
  <book genre='novel' ISBN='1-861001-57-5'>
    <title>Pride And Prejudice</title>
