Default Converting an XML File into a HTML File

Hi I am a VB.Net Newbie so be patient with me.

I am trying to convert a XML file into a HTML Document using the XSLTransform method. I want to do this in a VB.Net Windows Application as opposed to a Web Application. I have managed to generate an XML Document using XMLWriter but I get errors when trying to use the XSLTransform.Transform Method.

The current error I have is as follows:

"public sub transform(inputfile as string, outputfile as String) is obsolete: 'You should pass XMLResolver to Transform() method"

My code is:

    Public Sub ExportAsHTML()
            Dim xmlfilename As String = "c:\new.xml"
            Dim xslfilename As String = "c:\transform.xsl"
            Dim htmlfilename As String = "c:\new.html"
            Dim Transformer As New XslTransform
            Transformer.Transform(xmlfilename, htmlfilename)
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try

    End Sub

Can someone please post an example of a windows application that converts an xml file into a html file using XSLTransform method in VB.Net.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi ewan,


You are almost there, if your transformation does not require a Url Resolver then just pass Nothing as the third argument to the Transform.

Transformer.Transform(xmlfilename, htmlfilename, Nothing)


Dim Resolver As New System.Xml.XmlUrlResolver
Transformer.Transform(xmlfilename, htmlfilename, Resolver)
