ReadFromXMLStream


Unit:SDL_dstruct
Class:TAssocArray
Declaration:function ReadFromXMLStream (const InStream: TStream; DataID: string): boolean;

The function ReadFromXMLStream reads the data from the current position of the stream InStream. If the parameter DataID is empty, the first <assocarray> tag is evaluated and read into the associative array. If DataID is not empty, the entire rest of the stream is read until a <assocarray> tag is found whose attribute "id " matches DataID (the recognition of the "id " attribute is not case-sensitive). The property DataID is set to the identification string of the XML data source. The function ReadFromXMLStream returns TRUE if both a valid starting tag <assocarray> and a valid end tag </assocarray> has been found and the associative array has been updated.

Hint: Please note that the type of the data will be changed to the more general type when reading data from an XML file (e.g. shortint or byte will become integer).
