VB.NET XML Tree Viewer
The Howes-IT-Going XML Tree Viewer is a VB.NET application which I wrote(using Visual Studio 2003), that Imports the System.Data, .Drawing, .Windows.Forms, .NET and .XML Namespaces. The program parses/traverses/validates standard XML formatted files and reports basic non well formed errors.
I wrote this program while learning how to parse standard RSS XML formatted Feed files by their RSS Version, Channel, Title, Description, Link, Publish Date and THEN by RSS Item, Title, Description and Publish Date. I really got into Rich Site Syndication and Web blogs
and then also found out that Microsoft actually uses XML documents and schemas(behind the scenes) in their SQL Server, Data Transformation Services, BizTalk and even .NET.
I have also created other Windows and Web Based XML/RSS Feed Generators and Readers.
You can find both at the main Howes-IT-Going.com page or at
RSS Generator AND RSS XML Reader.
I can provide copies of the source code for demonstration purposes upon request. Please feel free to check out my other applications too!
Step 1: Create or Get a Valid XML Document to be used.
Notice below, that I created C:\Howes-IT-Going\RSS_Feeds.xml. This will be the directory\file referenced in the higxmltree.exe.
Step 2: Create VB.NET application to read XML Text Nodes and View them.
Step 3: Run VB.NET application to read XML Text Nodes and View them.
