Function XMLDocOpenString() Professional

Create XML document from a string.

XMLDocOpenString( <cXMLString>, [<nErrHandle>] ) --> nDocHandle
Character string representing a valid XML document.
Pass a variable by reference which receives an error handle if errors were recorded.

Returns a non-zero handle for the passed string or 0 if there are not enough system resources for the parser, or when the string does not contain valid XML code. The handle returned by this function must be used in subsequent calls to other XMLDoc..() functions.

If the function returns 0, more information can be obtained by calling XMLDocGetErrorList(, <nErrHandle>).


Invokes the XML parser engine which parsed the passed string and builds the internal tree structure.
