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: .

    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.
