For those who are interested. I wont go into much of the details for the usefullness of this code but some of you my like it. I recently was asked to help with RSS parsing. The idea was to catolog RSS Feeds into a sql server. The following might come in handy for some of you. These are the two fucntions that I wrote to break down RSS Feeds. Public Sub GetFeed() ã€€ ' Bring back the Feed Dim doc As New XPathDocument(rssURL) ã€€ Dim nav As XPathNavigator = doc.CreateNavigator() Dim iter As XPathNodeIterator = nav.Select(rssSelect) ' Loop through the nodes While iter.MoveNext() ' Get the data we need from the node ProcessNode(iter.Current) End While ã€€ End Sub 'GetFeed Sub ProcessNode(ByVal lstNav As XPathNavigator) Dim title As String = "" Dim link As String = "" Dim description As String = "" Dim pubdate As String = "" ' Get the child nodes Dim iterNews As XPathNodeIterator = lstNav.SelectDescendants(XPathNodeType.Element, False) ' Loop through the child nodes While iterNews.MoveNext() ' Save the current Name Dim rssName As String = iterNews.Current.Name ' Is this the title? If rssName.ToUpper() = rssTitle.ToUpper() Then title = iterNews.Current.Value End If ' Is this the Link? If rssName.ToUpper() = rssLink.ToUpper() Then link = iterNews.Current.Value End If ' Is this the Description? If rssName.ToUpper() = rssDescription.ToUpper() Then description = iterNews.Current.Value End If If rssName.ToUpper() = rssPubDate.ToUpper() Then pubdate = iterNews.Current.Value End If End While ' Make sure the link and title are at least 10 characters long If link.Length > 10 And title.Length > 10 Then ' Update the database InsertNews(SourceID, link, title, description, pubdate) End If End Sub 'ProcessNode For these functions to work you will need to populate a sql server table with the following fields: SourceID RSSSelect RSSTitle RSSLink RSSDescrp RSSURL RSSpubDate You can call the function simply like GetFeed() In my case the following is a simple example Dim Dr2 As DataRow For Each Dr2 In dt2.Rows sql = "Delete TempNews from tempnews" objCommand = New SqlCommand(sql, HomeServer) objCommand.ExecuteNonQuery() For Each dr In dt.Rows SourceID = dr("SourceID").ToString() rssSelect = dr("RSSSelect").ToString() rssTitle = dr("RSSTitle").ToString() rssLink = dr("RSSLink").ToString() rssDescription = dr("RSSDescrp").ToString() rssURL = dr("RSSURL").ToString() & Dr2("Symbol").ToString() & dr("RSSURLEND").ToString() rssPubDate = dr("RSSpubDate").ToString() symbol = Dr2("Symbol").ToString() Console.WriteLine(rssURL) GetFeed() Next The idea is to populate the sql server table with rss feed info. Populate the table with the tags that appear before each of the nodes you're interested in. Then you can break down that RSS feed into the info you need and bring it back in to a sql server for analysis. I wrote this up pretty quick so I'm sorry if my brian is scattered. If you need any help using the function or want to see more of the code let me know.
