Accessing XML files

Hello

Is this line of code correct?

void ExistenceClient::LoadAccount(void)

XMLFile * accountconfig =  new XMLFile(context_);
accountconfig -> Load(File((const string &) accountconfigfilename,FILE_READ));

Thanks. I’ll give it a try tomorrow.

I tried the code it seems to work. I am trying the opposite instead of reading now writing. I’m getting a compiliation error. I understand the XML is in a resource path. From what I see, there’s 2 or 3 ways to write a file so I think I’m getting confused and putting it all together somehow.

This is the response code. I am thinking of keeping the format xml but making all the account information highly encrypted.

[quote]// load account info
void ExistenceClient::SaveAccount(void)
{
String accountconfigfilename=ACCOUNTFILE;

ResourceCache* cache = GetSubsystem<ResourceCache>();

XMLFile * accountconfig = cache->GetResource<XMLFile>(accountconfigfilename);


XMLElement configElem = accountconfig -> CreateRoot("account");
XMLElement idElement = configElem.CreateChild("uniqueid");
XMLElement emailElement= configElem.CreateChild("email");
XMLElement firstnameElement  = configElem.CreateChild("firstname");
XMLElement middlenameElement  = configElem.CreateChild("middlename");
XMLElement lastnameElement  = configElem.CreateChild("lastname");
XMLElement passwordElement = configElem.CreateChild("password");

idElement.SetString("uniqueid", "test");
emailElement.SetString("email", "test");
firstnameElement.SetString("firstname", "test");
middlenameElement.SetString("middlename", "test");
lastnameElement.SetString("lastname", "test");
passwordElement.SetString("passord", "test");

accountconfig -> Save(File(cache->GetResourceFileName<XMLFile>(accountconfigfilename), FILE_WRITE));


return;

}

Try this:

File saveFile(context_, cache->GetResourceFileName<XMLFile>(accountconfigfilename), FILE_WRITE);
accountconfig->Save(saveFile);

[quote=“Mike”]Try this:

File saveFile(context_, cache->GetResourceFileName<XMLFile>(accountconfigfilename), FILE_WRITE);
accountconfig->Save(saveFile);
[/code][/quote]

This is the message I get now in response to the "File savefile(...)". Everything else seems correct. So, if anyone knows whats wrong. It will be appreciated. I'll take a crack at it much later this evening.

I redid the code. I was using Urho3D - String similiar to the standard string class. Additionally, realized I cannot use resource because it’s blank. Basically causing a segmentation error. This code seems to work.

[code]// save account info
void ExistenceClient::SaveAccount(void)
{
String accountconfigfilename;

ResourceCache * cache = GetSubsystem<ResourceCache>();
FileSystem * filesystem = GetSubsystem<FileSystem>();

//cout << filesystem->GetProgramDir().CString()+"CoreData/"+accountconfigfilename.CString();

accountconfigfilename.Append(filesystem->GetProgramDir().CString());
accountconfigfilename.Append("CoreData/");
accountconfigfilename.Append(ACCOUNTFILE);

File saveFile(context_, accountconfigfilename.CString(), FILE_WRITE);

// check if account file exist
if(!filesystem->FileExists(accountconfigfilename.CString()))
{
    cout << "\r\nAccount file ("<< accountconfigfilename.CString() << ") does not exist.";
}

XMLFile * accountconfig  = new XMLFile(context_);

XMLElement configElem = accountconfig -> CreateRoot("account");
XMLElement idElement = configElem.CreateChild("uniqueid");
XMLElement emailElement= configElem.CreateChild("email");
XMLElement firstnameElement  = configElem.CreateChild("firstname");
XMLElement middlenameElement  = configElem.CreateChild("middlename");
XMLElement lastnameElement  = configElem.CreateChild("lastname");
XMLElement passwordElement = configElem.CreateChild("password");

idElement.SetString("uniqueid", "test");
emailElement.SetString("email", "test");
firstnameElement.SetString("firstname", "test");
middlenameElement.SetString("middlename", "test");
lastnameElement.SetString("lastname", "test");
passwordElement.SetString("passord", "test");

accountconfig->Save(saveFile);

return;

}[/code]
