  • Binding my XML Data to jQXGrid #107183



    I need your help as I am fairly new to this. I have an ASP page that exports my recordset to an XML file. I’d like to read my XML file from this url: http://www.accdb.somee.com/gridview.xml and compile the data from into my grid.

    What would the markup/coding be to get the data (FirstName, LastName, Floor & Office) into a jQXGrid?

    I’ve tried the following, but the grid is still coming up empty:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
        <title id='Description'>This example shows how to create a Grid from XML data.</title>
    	<meta name="description" content="JavaScript Grid data binding to XML data" /> 	
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="../../../jqwidgets/styles/jqx.base.css" type="text/css" />
        <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1" />

    Hello Buggs2015,

    I saw that you have meaning content as attributes and for this purpose I would like to suggest you try on that way:

    var source = {
        url: "http://www.accdb.somee.com/gridview.xml",
        datafields: [
            name: 'FirstName',
            type: 'string',
    	map: "[FirstName]"
          }, {
            name: 'LastName',
            type: 'string',
            map: "[LastName]"
          }, {
            name: 'Floor',
            type: 'number',
            map: "[Floor]"
          }, {
            name: 'Office',
            type: 'string',
            map: "[Office]"
        datatype: "xml",
        root: "rs\\:data",
        record: "z\\:row"

    We have a similar topic.
    I hope this will help.

    Best Regards,
