how to read an xml file from "My Documents"

Recommended Posts

I'm a newbie to programing in windows mobile 5 using visual c#. What I'm trying to do is build an app that reads a xml file from "My Documents" and changes the data around to display it. How do i get my program to read the xml file? ;)

Have a look at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307548

Also, rather than hard code the path, use Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal) which will return the path of the My Documents folder!

If you have a schema of the XML file you could use the xsd.exe tool to generate a class which has all the properties of the xml. To read the xml file in the class use the XmlSerializer. That way you won't have to parse the xml yourself.
