Hi there i have a website that shows live tv guide data i have created a dynamic xml api with php and sql

wen the url is called it displays xml code shown bellow

<categorys>
<category>
<title>News</title>
<code>111</coode>
</category>
<category>
<title>Sports</title>
<code>111</coode>
</category>
<category>
<title>Movies</title>
<code>111</coode>
</category>
</categorys>

how can i read this from the web eliment and add each item into a list of somesort so that wen a user clicks on a item it then creates another request to the same url but with the code from the category in the xml file ?

Hi, 

Can you give us the url so that we can try? 

In the meantime, you can try the event, "when Web1.GotText" and display the parameter, "responseContent"

use the Web.XmlDecode block to convert the result into a list of lists
then use the lookup in pairs block to extract the relevant part, in your case the categorys
now you can use a for each in list loop to loop through the list

P.S.  If you're generating the XML, you might want to fix
