    Returning XML from CFC

    Mark Forsberg Level 1
      I'm trying to return either an xml string or xmlObject through a webservice. When I dump the return I get the following code (Some of the code)
      <thankyoucards> <submission> <username>returnVariable</username> <orderdate>returnVariable</orderdate> <jobnumber>returnVariable</jobnumber> <contactname>returnVariable</contactname>

      XMLParse chokes on attempting to display this.

      In my cfc I'm using the cfsavecontent tag to create the xml

      <cfset myXML="">

      <!--- generate xml --->
      <cfsavecontent variable="myXML">
      <thankyoucards>
      <submission>
      <username>returnVariable</username>
      <orderdate>returnVariable</orderdate>
      <jobnumber>returnVariable</jobnumber>
      <contactname>returnVariable</contactname>
      <email>returnVariable</email>
      <contactphone>returnVariable</contactphone>
      <mailclass>returnVariable</mailclass>
      <dropdate>returnVariable</dropdate>
      <pieces>returnVariable</pieces>
      <fileupload>returnVariable</fileupload>
      <wordupload>returnVariable</wordupload>
      <addfiles>returnVariable</addfiles>
      <cardtype>returnVariable</cardtype>
      <comments></comments>
      </submission>
      </thankyoucards>
      </cfsavecontent>
      <cfreturn myXML>
      How can I return the xml so that I can parse it into an xml object?
      Thanks for the help.
