Get text before start tag in xml file using xpath in c# RRS feed

All replies

  • Hi Soniya,

    XML files have a very particular structure:

    1. Byte Order Mark (BOM), optional.
    2. XML Prolog, optional.
    3. Root tag, mandatory to be a well-formed.
    4. Everything else.

    Please clarify what you need and provide your XML sample.

  • Hi Soniya Singh,

    I would suggest that you read the following about Select Nodes Using XPath Navigation.


    I hope it helps.

    Best regards,
