Javascript Tree Control

Well, I've finally found a free Javascript tree control, one with a license which means I can use it in the commercial product I'm working on.

It's available for download nowhere, and I have to say I'm pleased with it, as it uses unobtrusive JavaScript to transform a nested UL into the tree.

Edit: Removed the link to the software, as it no longer exists on the linked-to site.

XPATH in .NET

Sometimes I'm truly oblivious to things.

I love working with XML in .NET it's a great way to send information across the internet to disparate companies, such as UPS. Well, when parsing XML messages that I receive I use XPATH. No big deal. The problem lies in the fact that I don't do it often, so I tend to forget that first "/".

Not a big deal. Just an hour of hunting down why I wasn't reporting the response I received from UPS.

That, and the fact that I was doing error checking on Node.Value and Node.InnerText when only Node.InnerText was populated.
