I am developing my own RSS Reader using the Microsoft Ajax Toolkit, and I am having trouble retrieving the header
information of a rss feed nothing special just the one at slashfilm ( This particular feed
has several namespaces in there and I would like to parse through them.

Is there a particular method which I could use to get this header data as a string object.

Just like to add Brian you've done a great job, keep it up.

Many thanks.

The discrete XML namespaces declared on the document root that extend the RSS feed located at are:

Currently the Argotic framework natively supports all of the above syndication extensions except the following:

For information on natively supported extensions, please review Overview of syndication extensions natively supported by the framework in the wiki.
For a basic tutorial on how to consume supported sysndication extensions, see Consuming an extended RSS feed in the wiki.

For unsupported extensions, you will need to write a custom syndication extension using the framework syndication extension abstract base class. Hope this helps you get going on developing your RSS reader, when you are close to finishing it, let me know and I'll link to your project if you are releasing it to the public.

Thanks, I was able to extract the slashfilm data within the extended <content:encoded> tags, which uses the xmlns:content="
namespace but now I've got a problem of binding the data to a repeater.

Would it be at all possible to post some example code demonstrating how to bind feed data with extensions to a repeater, I looked around in the discussions
but couldn't find any.

It should be similar to binding to a generic IEnumerable data source, but I will try to get some example code up on the wiki that demonstrates data binding.

Hi, I've managed to bind the data to a repeater and also display the content in a webpage. I still think that having some sort of example code
up will be a good idea for others who may have similar problems.
