VB.NET 9.0: XML Hole

VB.NET 9.0: XML Hole

  • Comments 2

I have discussed about the native XML support in VB.NET code editor in one of my BLOG posts. Now to generate a XML dynamically with values you can play with LINQ and project it to a XML.

 

Let us get the list of process running into my local machine with their thread count,

 

Original LINQ

 

Dim query = From p In System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses() _

            Select New With _

                { _

                    .ProcessName = p.ProcessName, _

                    .ThreadCount = p.Threads.Count _

                }

 

Structure of XML I want to create

 

<Processes>

    <Process ThreadCount="2">Some Name</Process>

</Processes>

 

To generate XML you may have this code,

 

Dim _xml3 = _

<Processes>

    <%= From p In System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses() _

    Select <Process ThreadCount=<%= p.Threads.Count %>><%= p.ProcessName %></Process> %>   

</Processes>

 

Console.WriteLine(_xml)

 

Dim fileName As String = "C:\MyProcesses.xml"

_xml3.Save(fileName)

 

Shell("notepad " + fileName, AppWinStyle.NormalFocus)

 

This will also save the XML in a file and you will find the XML header.

 

Namoskar!!!
