Return value:    XMLElement Object


The following Basic example displays the content of the second Address element in an XML document that contains addresses. Because the Item method is the default method of the XMLElements collection and the Text property is the default property of the XMLElement object the three lines of code are equivalent:

MsgBox TXTextControl1.XMLElements("Address").Item(2).Text

MsgBox TXTextControl1.XMLElements("Address")(2).Text

MsgBox TXTextControl1.XMLElements("Address")(2)
