I'm currently working on a pretty straight-forward AJAX application. In this application, I get some XML, and then parse it. An example of what I'm working with is as such:
<?xml version="1.0"?> <postRoot xml:lang="EN"> <post type="comment" date="January 1, 1970"> <user>athlon32</user> <content>Hello World</content> </post> </postRoot>
Now, I've been able to read the XML with
XMLHttpRequest , my trouble is with parsing the results. I've tried tons of things, but I just can't seem to get the different child nodes.
Now, let's say we have something like this:
var xml = xhr.responseXML; var allPosts = xml.getElementsByTagName('post');
Could I use
childNode to access
content ? And if so, how? I've tried many things, but nothing is working :/ Is there a better way to parse the results I get back from the server?
