i am using xpath to navigate through this xml file.
i used the following code to navigate through items node.

XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();

XPathNavigator nav = doc.CreateNavigator();
XPathExpression exp = nav.Compile("rss/channel/item");

XPathNodeIterator iterator = nav.Select(exp);
XPathNodeIterator iter1;
     while (iterator.MoveNext())
        iter1 = iterator.Current.SelectChildren("media:content", "");
         if (iter1.Count > 0)
            while (iter1.MoveNext())
                if (iter1.Current.HasAttributes == true)
                   string url = iter1.Current.GetAttribute("url", "");

but when i execute the code, the iter1.count always returns zero. if i select anyother children(like title or description)i am able to display the value.but when i select media:content(one of the subitems of item) i am not able to display the attribute value.

Where am i going wrong?

Any suggestions please



hi guys,

i solved it by myself. for everybody's reference,

iter1 = iterator.Current.SelectChildren("content", "http://tools.search.yahoo.com/mrss/");

i need to include the namespace URI in the selectchildren method and it worked.
