  • I assume you want to get the weight types bound to your drop down lists?

    Try this:

      Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Not IsPostBack Then
          Dim xE As XElement = XElement.Load("http://www.webservicex.net/ConvertWeight.asmx?WSDL")
          Dim q = From weight In xE.Descendants
              Where weight.Name.ToString.EndsWith("enumeration") AndAlso weight.Parent.Parent.@name = "WeightUnit"
              Select weight
          For Each weight In q
            DropDownList1.Items.Add(New ListItem(weight, weight))
        End If
      End Sub
