Assuming it is only the contents of the xml tags you want to change and not everything else, you will probably need regular expressions.

Have you a better example?

Actually i m trying here with the datamigration concept.once i convert my XML values to an foxpro 9.0 database, its not accepting and CASE SENSITIVE problem occur.so for the remedy, i need to convert the values which is fetching from xml file and xml schema to "ALL LOWERCASE"... for example...

xml file :

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes" ?>
- <NewDataSet>
- <Table1>
<No>1</no>

<Name>www</name>

</Table1>


- <Table1>
<No>2</no>

<Name>gfdf</name>

</Table1>


</NewDataSet>

from the above i want to fetch the "no" and "name" and all should be in lowercase.

xml schema :

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes" ?> - <xs:schema id="NewDataSet" xmlns="" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:msdata="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xml-msdata">
- <xs:element name="NewDataSet" msdata:IsDataSet="true" msdata:UseCurrentLocale="true">
- <xs:complexType>
- <xs:choice minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
- <xs:element name="Table1">
- <xs:complexType>
- <xs:sequence>
<xs:element name="No" type="xs:int" minOccurs="0" />

<xs:element name="Name" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />

</xs:sequence>


</xs:complexType>


</xs:element>


</xs:choice>


</xs:complexType>


</xs:element>


</xs:schema>

in the above schema, i want to fetch the element name such as "No" and "Name"... but all in lower case. HELP ME PLZ!

I couldn't think of a way to do it with regex:!: Well I could but I couldn't get the replacement to work.

Here is the code that finds everything within the < > then converts it to lowercase leaving the other stuff untouched.

Basically, the form has one button and two rich text boxes. I just used ctrl + v to paste the original xml into the first rich text box.

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim txt As String
        Dim newText As String

        'Drag a rich text box onto your form
        ' In the properties menu, in name call it
        ' RichTextBox1

        txt = RichTextBox1.Text

        Dim go As Integer = 0
        Dim tmp As String = ""

        Dim finalString As String = ""

        For i As Integer = 0 To txt.Length - 1

            If (txt.Substring(i, 1) = "<") Then
                go = 1
            End If

            If go = 1 And (txt.Substring(i, 1) <> ">") Then
                tmp = tmp & txt.Substring(i, 1)
            End If

            If go = 0 Then
                finalString = finalString & txt.Substring(i, 1)
            End If

            newText = ""
            If (txt.Substring(i, 1) = ">") Then

                tmp = tmp & ">"
                finalString = finalString & tmp.ToLower
                go = 0 'reset this baby
                tmp = "" 'clear the holding string
            End If

        Next

        'Drag another rich text box onto your form
        ' In the properties menu, under name call it
        ' RichTextBox2
        RichTextBox2.Text = (finalString)

    End Sub

And a test using some xml:

As you can see all the stuff in the xml tags are converted to lowercase but the remaining stuff isn't.
