Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video Taking XPath for a spin, part of XML Essential Training.
- [Narrator] Okay let's take what we've learned about…XPath so far and take it out for a spin on…some sample XML data.…I'm going to be using Visual Studio Code for this and if…you chose not to use VS Code and you're using your…own text editor, that's okay, you can just relax and watch.…Or if you want to try out XPath for yourself, there are…some pretty good online XPath testers.…If you do a Google search on XPath tester you will find…a variety of online XPath tools that you can use if…you want to try this part.…So assuming that you installed the XML developer plugin…that we talked about earlier in the course, let's begin…by opening up the business card, that XML file here…in chapter five.…
This is the business card example we have been using…throughout the course.…To invoke the XPath tool in VS Code I will type command…shift P and that will bring up the command pallet and…I will type XPath.…You can see the result I get is the evaluate XPath command…so I will select that and I get an edit field where I can…type XPath statements.…
