Hello Everyone,

I am new to Javascript. I am developing a Javascript code to create a HTML table.
I need to search the xml file for the string and then read the tags related to the string searched..

Here is the example :

So, I need to search for file_name.txt and based on the search results, I need to read the decode, test, log_file tags and enter these values in the table.

I would appreciate if you could tell me how to search for the string and read the tags.

Javascript is not very good at parsing XML. Yeah it's possible, but the APIs differ in various browsers, making cross-browser scripting with XML challenging. But there are open-source libraries available that simplify the task - try searching for "xml parser for javascript" and a few candidates show up.
