Hi there,
i've a problem with a strange xml and I don't know how to deserialize it.

This is the xml:

<pre lang="xml">
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<CRMMessage language="en_US" currency="USD" isTrustedSAT="false" hostversion="1.00">
<RSColumn name="PRIMARYPOSREF" type="string" nullable="true"></RSColumn>
<RSColumn name="ACTIVE" type="boolean" nullable="false"></RSColumn>
<RSColumn name="firstName" type="string" nullable="true"></RSColumn>
<RSColumn name="LastName" type="string" nullable="true"></RSColumn>
<RSColumn name="postalCode" type="string" nullable="true"></RSColumn>
<RSColumn name="city" type="string" nullable="true"></RSColumn>
<RSColumn name="county" type="string" nullable="true"></RSColumn>
<RSColumn name="addressline1" type="string" nullable="true"></RSColumn>
<RSColumn name="addressline2" type="string" nullable="true"></RSColumn>
<RSColumn name="organizationname" type="string" nullable="true"></RSColumn>
<Row id="168209">
<Col />
<Col />
<Col />
<Col />
<Col />
<Col />
<Col />


The xml will return always one row.

Thanks for your help.

First of all, how did you end up with this strange XML (what's so strange?)? Perhaps you rather need to do both serialization and deserialization? Generally, those operations are symmetric and hence should be done in a single place. If is not so, most likely you are solving a wrong problem, which you simply should not solve.

The XML you provided only has one row (id 168209). So always having one row is the correct behavior.

You should post that as an answer, since the provided XML really does contain only one row....
I know that sound silly, since the clues were there since the beginning...

I've not understand what you mean.

I would, but then it would just get downvoted. I think he's saying that the XML will always return one row, but the problem is that he doesn't know how to deserialize the XML.

I've solved making the classes with this tool: Simple XML to Code.
