  • By: RWBill

    I am wanting to count the number of nodes in an xml file and display that 
    number in the content of a lable.  I have bound the data to content.  In the 
    data binding dialog it allows for an alternate xpath expression.  I do not 
    seem to be able to write the xpath statement correctly.  Would you be able to 
    show how this syntax should be.

    The best way to do this as far as I can think is to parse the markup -
    create a collection of objects that you want to bind against and expose a
    property in the model that you can then bind against as well. I am
    personally not a big fan on XmlDataProvider - it is only useful for very
    limited cases.

    Thanks,
