Hi all I am trying to make a little program that when you type in a number (anydigit) it will search the xml file and display the results in a text box, i have found some code that i would like to modify, the code here has no option to type into but a drop down box. How do I make it so I have to type the number in then click search ?

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Xml.Linq;
using System.Xml;

namespace example
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

        private void populateCombo()

            XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
		    XmlNodeList nodeList = doc.SelectNodes("VGames/Game");

		    foreach(XmlNode node in nodeList)
                if (!cmbPlatform.Items.Contains(node.SelectSingleNode("Platform").InnerText))

        private void butFilter_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            XDocument xmlDoc = XDocument.Load("VideoGames.xml");

            var games = from game in xmlDoc.Descendants("Game")
                where game.Element("Platform").Value == cmbPlatform.SelectedItem.ToString()
                select new
                  Title = game.Element("Title").Value,
                  Platform = game.Element("Platform").Value,

            txtResults.Text = "";
            foreach (var game in games)
                txtResults.Text = txtResults.Text + "Title: " + game.Title + "\n";
                txtResults.Text = txtResults.Text + "Platform: " + game.Platform + "\n\n";

            if (txtResults.Text == "")
                txtResults.Text = "No Results.";

You better post this one in an appropriate forum. Your code is not C++ and this is the C++ forum!!!!
