    Coder's block

    I'm at a loose end right now. If anyone wants some (non-database related) code written then I'll be glad to help.

    For free, obviously.
    I don't live here any more.

    A small app that does the following:

    Add, Delete, Modify nodes in an XML file. The structure of the XML file is to be fixed, and you should make use of XSD.

    Simple for you, I'm sure.

    OK, more details please.

    I'm going to have to learn about XML eventually, so it might as well be now Just running throught the walkthrough on MSDN (Always was a fast learner).

    Well, let the XML file be a format for storing information about your MP3 collection.

    A good resource for the basics of XML is

    http://www.w3schools.com/xml/

    You can then go for the QuickStart tutorials as well.

    I haven't gotten to XSD (I'm actually busy working nowadays ), but I hope to soon. If you find any sample code that allows you to work with XSD, do post it here.

    Open up the IDE and in the index keyword box type "XSD Schemas" then in the results box that comes up select "XML in Visual Studio"

    (or try this URL from the IDE address bar: "ms-help://MS.VSCC.2003/MS.MSDNQTR.2003FEB.1033/vbcon/html/vboriXMLSchemaDesignerWalkthroughs.htm", which may or may not work depending on your help version)

    Then follow the link to the walkthroughs. They are not comprehensive but they are OK.

    I'll have a go at this MP3 idea.
