How to parse XML data in an ASP page?

The Document Object Model plays an important role in displaying the xml data in an asp page. This is a standard governed by W3C. You will be using this DOM for working with the xml documents to display the data in them in an asp page. to parse the xml data in an asp page, you have to load the xml document and navigate through the elements.


_______________________________________________

For this you have to first create an XML Document Object using the Server.CreateObject method. Once you have created this object. Use the async property of the xml document object to set it to false so that the contents of the xml file are loaded instantly without any delay. Now it is time to load the xml file. Load the xml file using the Load method of the xml DOM.

This method takes the physical path of the xml file as an argument. Since it is not easy to judge the physical path, we use the Server.MapPath method to get the physical path and load that document.

Now, the xml document being loaded, it is time to navigate through the xml documents and get the elements of the xml document. You have to start from the main node or the root node and navigate through the document and then display it.

If you are using an xsl sheet then you can use the transformNode method to transform the xml document using the xsl and display it.
