    In the .Net there is a Namespace called XML where you can grab the Class XmlDocument.

    XmlDocument xmlDoc = new XmlDocument();
    and use a method called LoadXml(string xml) to load the xml into the XmlDocument Object.

    When the Xml is loaded into the XmlDocument object you can view it's attributes and element using the properties inside the XmlDocument.

    For more info see MSDN Documentation on XmlDocument: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.xml.xmldocument.aspx

    There is another interesting feature in C# namely XML Serialization. You can read from / to a class to / from xml. A convenient way of using C# for reading and writing xml data.

    XmlDocument xDoc = new XmlDocument();
    XmlNodeList Fname = xDoc.GetElementsByTagName("Fname");
    XmlNodeList Lname = xDoc.GetElementsByTagName("Lname");
    textBox1.Text = Fname[0].InnerText;
    textBox2.Text = Lname[0].InnerText;
