    XmlDocuments.SelectNodes() returns nothing!

    Hi.
    My XML file does contain "node" element but my code prints nothing:
    Code:
    string strPath = "./CarList.xml";
    			
    			string strXpath;
    			
    			strXpath = "/Name";
    						
    			XmlNodeList objNodeList;
    			
    			XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
    			doc.Load( strPath );
    			
    			objNodeList = doc.SelectNodes( "/name" );
    			
    			foreach( XmlNode node in objNodeList )
    			{
    				Console.WriteLine( "Here" );
    			}

    Can you show us some of your xml? If there is a namespace, you may need to use an XmlNameSpaceManager.

    <CarDetail>
    <Name>Pride</Name>
    <Model>Sedan</Model>
    <ItemsInStock>20</ItemsInStock>
    <Price>6000</Price>
    <Description>
    <Color>Orange</Color>
    <EngSize>1300</EngSize>

    xml and xpath are case sensitive

    "/name" and "/Name" are not the same.

    It still prints nothing sir.I replace the string with 'strXpath'.

    EDIT:It worked. I just needed to change my strXpath to "//Name".
