Reading xml ref attribute in .NET

I can do this in Xpath, but unfortunately for this particular project I am unable to use xpath.

I have the following node selected:

<client href="" rel="needthisdata"></client>


correctly returns "", but


does not work?

What am I doing wrong here?

Full Usage:

foreach (XmlNode clientnode in clientnodelist)

The above gives a NullReferenceException, whereas replacing "rel" with "href" works fine.

I'm sure i've selected the correct node as well as innertext matches, as well as attribute.count returning 2.


Read your code. You are using clientnode as the loop variable, but you are referencing selectednode.

What if one particular node doesn't have a "rel" attribute? NullReferenceException.
