cant retrieve xml values using NSXMLParser


My php response in xml is of this type

<users> <username>myemail</username> <password>mypass</password> </users>

Now this is my parseUrl class

NSURL *parserUrl = [[[NSURL alloc] initWithString:urlString] autorelease]; NSXMLParser *parser = [[[NSXMLParser alloc] initWithContentsOfURL:parserUrl] autorelease]; [parser setDelegate:self]; - (void)parser:(NSXMLParser *)parser didStartElement:(NSString *)elementName namespaceURI:(NSString *)namespaceURI qualifiedName:(NSString *)qName attributes:(NSDictionary *)attributeDict { if ( [elementName isEqualToString:@"users"]) { return; } if ( [elementName isEqualToString:@"username"] ) { NSString *val = [attributeDict objectForKey:@"username"] ; return; } }

Now the problem is, the attributeDict is giving 0 pairs. The function is reading username, password and users meaning it can get inside this loop

if ( [elementName isEqualToString:@"username"] ) { NSString *val = [attributeDict objectForKey:@"username"] ; return; }

But how can i retrieve the value of this node?


remove return statment

and attributeDict is alway contain attributes.


here 'id' is attribute of user.

to getting string value, you need to write

//take string variable in header file 'elementname' NSString *elementname; - (void)parser:(NSXMLParser *)parser didStartElement:(NSString *)elementName namespaceURI:(NSString *)namespaceURI qualifiedName:(NSString *)qName attributes:(NSDictionary *)attributeDict { elementname = elementName; } - (void)parser:(NSXMLParser *)parser didStartElement:(NSString *)elementName namespaceURI:(NSString *)namespaceURI qualifiedName:(NSString *)qName attributes:(NSDictionary *)attributeDict { elementname = elementName; } -(void)parser:(NSXMLParser *)parser foundCharacters:(NSString *)string{ if([elementname isEqualToString:@"username"]) { NSLog(@"username : %@",string); } else if([elementname isEqualToString:@"password"]) { NSLog(@"password : %@",string); } }


try this

-(void) parserDidStartDocument:(NSXMLParser *)parser { list = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init]; resultArray = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init]; currentElementValue = [[NSMutableString alloc] init]; } -(void) parser:(NSXMLParser *)parser didStartElement:(NSString *)elementName { currentElementName = [elementName copy]; if([elementName isEqualToString:@"username"]) { list = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init]; } } - (void)parser:(NSXMLParser *)parser didEndElement:(NSString *)elementName namespaceURI:(NSString *)namespaceURI qualifiedName:(NSString *)qName { if([elementName isEqualToString:@"username"]) { [resultArray addObject: currentElementValue]; } } -(void) parserDidEndDocument:(NSXMLParser *)parser { NSLog(@"Result Array= %@",resultArray); NSLog(@"list Array= %@",list); }
