Write some Software

Read an xml file that has special characters.

I have a translation file in Italian that I am trying to read from xml. The strings were within the VB code but we transferred them to the attached xml. As the reader progresses it finds some characters that it cannot process.

The routine that we have is:

Public Sub initializeStrings()

Dim dir As String = [url removed, login to view]


Dim pos As Integer = [url removed, login to view]("DEEP")

If pos > 0 Then

dir = [url removed, login to view](pos + 4)

End If

Catch ex As Exception

End Try

Dim file As New XmlDataDocument()

[url removed, login to view](dir & "\Language\" & [url removed, login to view] & "[url removed, login to view]")

[url removed, login to view] = [url removed, login to view]("Language").SelectSingleNode("ReportStrings")

End Sub

The [url removed, login to view] is

Public strings As XmlNode = Nothing

The exception that we get is:

[url removed, login to view] was unhandled




Message=Invalid character in the given encoding. Line 757, position 74.

Source=[url removed, login to view]

SourceUri=file:///C:/DeepExcavation/Visual Studio Software Development/Visual Studio Projects/DeepeXcav 2014/DEEP/Language/[url removed, login to view]
