If you regularly have to work with XML formatted data in FileMaker Pro®, getting the relevant parts of that data, and putting it into text fields can be a daunting task.
And you would probably say it is impossible to get a node of the XML out in one step as it would need a lot of script steps. But that is not the case if you use a plug-in.
Yes, it can be done!
It can be done if you install Troi Text Plug-in. This plug-in adds a function TrText_XML( ) to your arsenal of tools.
This function allows you to easily parse out a node from XML in one step! Here is the syntax of this function:
TrText_XML ("-GetNode" ; Node_to_get ; XML_data )
The function has three parameters: the first parameter specifies the action to take, in this case to get a node from the XML. The second parameter specifies which node you want to get. Finally the third parameter is the XML data you want to parse.
