  • Hi,

    You could use Winjs.xhr to do that.

    For example:

     var feedItems = [];
        function loadBlogFeedsFromWebAsXML() {
            var feedUrl = "http://blogs.msdn.com/b/windowsstore/rss.aspx";
            WinJS.xhr({ url: feedUrl }).then(
            function (result) {
                var xmlDoc = new Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlDocument();
                var nodes = xmlDoc.selectNodes("//item");
                var items = new Array();
                nodes.forEach(function (val, idx, travObj) {
                    var title = val.selectSingleNode("title").innerText;
                    var description = val.selectSingleNode("description").innerText;
                    var link = val.selectSingleNode("link").innerText;
                    var newItem = {
                        title: title,
                        summary: description,
                        uri: link
                DataUtils.feedItems = items;
                // Call other function which can use the DataUtils.feedItems to bind UI elements    
            function (err) {
            return DataUtils.feedItems;
            "DataUtils", {
                feedItems: feedItems

    #WinJS.xhr function

  • Dear Song Tian,

    This above sample is used to read the XML File.

    i want to read the HTML file and show into my page.

     var UploadedFile = document.getElementById(FileUploaderClientId);
        if (UploadedFile != null) {
            var CurrentFile=UploadedFile.files[0];
            if (CurrentFile) {
                    var reader = new FileReader();
                    reader.onload = FileContent;
    function FileContent(evt) {
            var Content = document.getElementById('Content');
                Content.innerHTML = evt.target.result;

    By this way i will read the HTML File Data and shown in my page.

    but, i any script is included in the HTML file means it will show an error.

    please help me to Edit Uploaded HTML file through my page.

  • have you tried using innerText instead of innerHTML?

    innerHTML causes DOM parsing.

  • ya i tried innerText also.

    If i use innerText, it will show the source of the HTML page. but my requirement to show the HTML file as a Preview Mode and also provide option to edit HTML Page content.
