Examples

The following code shows the use of the SearchForTextOfTag method to find a child by its tag name and return the contained text. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the SecurityElement class.

String^ storedDestroyTime = localXmlElement->SearchForTextOfTag( L"destroytime" );
string storedDestroyTime =
    localXmlElement.SearchForTextOfTag("destroytime");
Dim storedDestroyTime As String = localXmlElement.SearchForTextOfTag("destroytime")

Remarks

This method is equivalent to the following:

String^ SearchForTextOfTag(String^ tag)
{
    SecurityElement^ element = this->SearchForChildByTag(tag);
    return element->Text;
}
string SearchForTextOfTag(string tag)
{
    SecurityElement element = this.SearchForChildByTag(tag);
    return element.Text;
}
Public Function SearchForTextOfTag(ByVal tag As String) As String
    Dim element As SecurityElement = MyClass.SearchForChildByTag(tag)
    Return element.Text
End Function

With XML as follows, SearchForTextOfTag("second") would return "text2".

<thetag A="123" B="456" C="789"> <first>text1</first>  
    <second>text2</second></thetag>
