Import and read xml file

Posted on by 40

Dear Professionals,

I'm a beginner in ax, mind to guide me on how to import XML file and their content and project them to my tables and forms


so this is basically the data that needs to be extracted (highlighted) and i might these 

  • XmlDocument,

            xmlDocument.load(filename), to load the file

  •  XmlNodeList

              xmlNodeList = xmlDocument.documentElement().selectNodes(xml node path);

              xml node path, eg: MESSAGE/HEAD/MessageID

  • to get number of child


  • XmlNode, to get child node

            XmlNode = xmlLineNodeList.item(0).childNodes().item(node_i);

is there any links that has complete explaination as above?

    I don't think there is a separate documentation for X++, but there is no significant difference. You can learn the concepts from the link below.
