  • Question

  • I have a long string like  <abcd><xyz>testingmessage like this</xyz></abcd><abcd> <xyz>testingmessage like this</xyz></abcd><abcd> <xyz>testingmessage like this</xyz></abcd><abcd> <xyz>testingmessage like this</xyz></abcd>

    I want to create a separate xml file based on <abcd><xyz> and </xyz></abcd>these xml tags eg : <abcd><xyz>testingmessage like this</xyz></abcd>consider as one xml file .

  • If you prepend and append the missing elements like “<xml>” + your-long-string + “</xml>”, then it will look like an XML file, which can be saved, parsed, etc.

    Show the expected contents of the separate XML file.

  • Hi Saha,

    >>I want to create separate xml file based on <abcd><xyz> and </xyz></abcd> these xml tags in a string .

    Try this:

            static void Main(string[] args)
                XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
                XmlDeclaration dec = doc.CreateXmlDeclaration("1.0", "UTF-8", null);
                //create a root
                XmlElement root = doc.CreateElement("MyXML");
                //create a node
                XmlNode node = doc.CreateElement("abcd");
                //create an element
                XmlElement element1 = doc.CreateElement("xyz");
                element1.SetAttribute("Name", "Test1");
                element1.SetAttribute("ID", "01");
                element1.InnerText = "testingmessage like this";
                XmlNode node2 = doc.CreateElement("abcd");
                XmlElement element2 = doc.CreateElement("xyz");
                element2.SetAttribute("Name", "Test2");
                element2.SetAttribute("ID", "02");
                element2.InnerText = "testingmessage like this";
