Hi, Can i get some help to retrieve all name from the xml and display them on a listbox.

I tried some codes, but it is displaying only the fist tag name in a textbox,how to display all in a list box.

Imports System.IO
Imports System.Xml
Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim clsDocument As New System.Xml.XmlDocument
        Dim clsAuthors As System.Xml.XmlNodeList = clsDocument.SelectNodes("//bookstore/book/author")
        clsAuthors = clsDocument.GetElementsByTagName("author")
        For Each clsNode As System.Xml.XmlNode In clsAuthors
            Dim sName As String
                If clsNode.ChildNodes.Count = 1 Then
                    sName = clsNode.Item("name").InnerText
                ElseIf clsNode.ChildNodes.Count = 2 Then
                    sName = String.Concat(clsNode.Item("first-name").InnerText, " ", clsNode.Item("last-name").InnerText)
                End If
                sName = "(Unable to retrieve name)"
            End Try
            TextBox1.Text = String.Concat(TextBox1.Text, sName, ControlChars.CrLf)

    End Sub
