ESP32 Arduino: Parsing XML

DFRobot Dec 18 2019 575


This video explains how to parse a simple XML document using the ESP32 and the Arduino core. In this video we will use the TinyXML-2 library.

Note: On the video, I've mistakenly mentioned that the output of the FirstChildElement method is a XMLDocument object pointer, but it is a XMLElement object pointer.


Tested on an ESP32 FireBeetle board from DFRobot: https://www.dfrobot.com/product-1590.html

In case of error, the QueryIntText method returns:

- XML_CAN_NOT_CONVERT_TEXT: if the text cannot be converted to the requested type (int)

- XML_NO_TEXT_NODE if there is no child text to query.
