loading a string

Loads xml string data, and returns an Element object.

maci.xmlloadstr -> Element

Basic Example of loading a xml string using default positional parameter

data = maci.xmlloadstr('<mydata><data1>one</data1></mydata>')

In this example, we simply load xml data from a string using the xmlloadstr function and pass a string as an argument to the function to load the xml data, and assign the returned data to a variable.

Basic Example of accessing element data


Note: All values in xml data are returned as strings.
