I have been trying to work out device code that can read values from an XML file published by a device on my network. Looked over the XML guide that has been referenced by others and various topics about parsing, plus tried using some http code people have posted. But I never seem to get a useful value, always Null. So I know I am missing something, probably something simple... So I felt I should ask for recommendations or samples I should try. I CAN successfully determine if the device is "Online" (presence detection) but reading values, no luck.
Here is a sample of the XML:
<probes> <probe> <name>Tmp</name> <value>77.6</value> <type>Temp</type> </probe>
I do not even REALLY need to treat this as XML. If I could parse the value out (like I do on my phone with Tasker) that would work as well. Since the probe name will always be a specific one I am looking for followed by the value. In all the cases I am looking at the value would be a number. The type field does not matter but I wanted to give a complete "probe" sample at least.
Does anyone have any samples or recommendations I should look over or try? I can post Code samples later if anyone needs, but I have tried many things so anything I post would only be representative of the "current attempt" and not all the previous failures.
