Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: How to bind select XML Elements to Gridview

    How to bind select XML Elements to Gridview


    I was reading the article on how to retreive elements from an XML file and display them to the user. The Kitupa article is: http://www.kirupa.com/net/readingXML_pg3.htm .

    In my case I am able to get as far, except that I am stuck at the point where I need to be able to bind select elements' contents to a gridview.

    For example if I have an XML file that contains 5 elements, I want to take out only 2 and bind those 2 to a gridview. Is there a way to do that? What is the best way? Could you show me a code snippet?

    Thank you,

    After further trial and error and thanks to a colleague, I found that this was very easy and I was going way too far.

    All you need to do to specify which elements to bind is to set the columns in the aspx design file making sure to set autogenerate columns to false. This will automatically only pull the selected elements as opposed to all the elements.
