I'm working on a hangman game for my 1st years final exam programming/analyst.

I basically have everything setup so it works but there is one thing that I am unable to accomplish.

My game will create an xml for each player where I will store that persons Won/Lost stats per difficulty selected.

XML example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16" ?>
<UserStats>
  <Stats Difficulty = "Easy">
    <Won>10</Won>
    <Lost>0</Lost>
  </Stats>
  <Stats Difficulty = "Medium">
    <Won>10</Won>
    <Lost>0</Lost>
  </Stats>
  <Stats Difficulty = "Hard">
    <Won>10</Won>
    <Lost>0</Lost>
  </Stats>
</UserStats>

I was able to query the XML on element and attribute by doing the following:

Dim query As IEnumerable(Of XElement) = From q In UserXML.<Stats> _
                                                Where q.@Difficulty = Diff _
                                                Select q

If I output query.value I get the 2 values of the elements Won and Lost but they are concatenated.

For example, If I do this query on difficulty Easy then I get as outcome = 100

Could someone please tell me how I can assign the values of Won and Lost to existing variables so I can use them afterwards?

I can assing aliases to the select values but I'm unsure how to use them oustide the query.

This seems to work:
' Xml.
Dim myXml = <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?>
            <UserStats>
                <Stats Difficulty="Easy">
                    <Won>10</Won>
I used inline XML, but same idea.
