C# : Modify a xml node

c++xmlxmldocument

i have that xml file :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<reminders>
  <reminder>
    <Title>Alarm1</Title>
    <Description>Desc1</Description>
    <Time>03/07/2012 10:11AM</Time>
    <snooze>1</snooze>
    <repeat>None</repeat>
  </reminder>
</reminders>

And i want to modify the innertext from Alarm1 to another value so i wrote that code which actually duplicate the entire node .

        XmlDocument xml = new XmlDocument();

        xml.Load("0.xml");

        XmlNodeList elements = xml.SelectNodes("//reminders");

        foreach (XmlNode element in elements)
        {
            if (element.InnerText == "Alarm1")
            {
                XmlNode newvalue = xml.CreateElement("MODIFIED");
                element.ReplaceChild(newvalue, element);

                xml.Save("0.xml");
            }
        }

And then tried another code :

        foreach (XmlElement element in xml.SelectNodes("//reminder"))
        {
            if (element.InnerText == "Alarm1")
            {
                XmlNode newvalue = xml.CreateElement("MODIFIED");
                element.ReplaceChild(newvalue, element);

                xml.Save("0.xml");
            }
        }

But also doesn`t work….

EDIT 1 : [Figured out a new code]

        XmlDocument xml = new XmlDocument();

        xml.Load("0.xml");

        foreach (XmlElement element in xml.SelectNodes("//reminder"))
        {
            foreach (XmlElement element1 in element)
            {
                if (element.SelectSingleNode("//Title").InnerText == "Alarm1")
                {
                    XmlNode newvalue = xml.CreateElement("MODIFIED");
                    element.ReplaceChild(newvalue, element1);

                    xml.Save("0.xml");
                }
            }
        }

But it made the Alarm1 becomes

<MODIFIED />

EDIT 2 : [I SOLVED IT :D]
Okay here is the code i could figure out :

        XmlDocument xml = new XmlDocument();

        xml.Load("0.xml");

        foreach (XmlElement element in xml.SelectNodes("//reminder"))
        {
            foreach (XmlElement element1 in element)
            {
                if (element.SelectSingleNode("//Title").InnerText == "Alarm1")
                {
                    MessageBox.Show(element1.InnerText);
                    XmlNode newvalue = xml.CreateElement("Title");
                    newvalue.InnerText = "MODIFIED";
                    element.ReplaceChild(newvalue, element1);

                    xml.Save("0.xml");
                }
            }
        }

I`ll really appreciate your helps and thanks.

Best Solution

Try this:

xml.SelectSingleNode("//reminder/Title").InnerText = "NewValue";

Your foreach line is simply looping through a list of elements called "reminders", not it's child nodes.
