    evaluating XML data for comparison

    BigGunN Level 1

      Does anyone know if it is possible to evaluate an xml node to see if it holds a specific value, and if so how?

       

      I am trying to do something like this...

       

      Set myChild = myRoot.evaluateXPathExpression("//collections/page/pnum")

       

      if myChild(1) = 1 THEN

           [do something]

      Else

           [do something else]

      End if

       

      I keep getting  a "Object does not support this property or method" error on the first line of the if statement.

       

      If I placeXML into a text frame I can get the value of myChild(1), so I know the XPath is correct and there is something there, I just can't figure out how to use it.

      That particular node should hold the value of 1.

       

      I am using VB and CS5.5, but javascript answers/ examples are fine.

       

      thanks
