[iPhone] NSXMLParser problem
i am making us eof the NSXMLParser in my iPhone app.
What i am facing now is that in my xml file i am having characters like
<item>BOOKS & DVDs</item>
issue is that the foundCharacters method is returning me "BOOKS" , "&", "DVDs" in separately.
Actually it should return :BOOKS & DVDs" as a single string, isnt it?
the problem is there whereever i use "&", "trademark symbol" etc....
Its giving "my favourites" as a single string, means the problem is not because of whitespaces.
I tried appending all the strings that i got using appendString method of NSString class.
But the resulting string is displayed as "Books....." .
Its not because of the space limitation, i think the string is appending some miscs...
Please help me...
I got stuck up with my application...

Yeah.. its actually '&' only when u open the file in DashCode, But in safari it will show as "&" only.
So my question is why foundCharacters: method stops when some special chars get encoutered?
ie... from <item>Books & DVDs</item>
foundCharacters: method is returning "Books" , "&" , "DVDs" separately in 3 separate method calls.
I am expecting entire string to get returned in a one call....

Anyway, there are surely other, less obvious reasons the parser might break a text node value apart. It's an implementation detail that you can't predict. The behavior could also change in a future update.
So you're stuck. Your code will have to handle the concatination itself.

this is how the parsers in java work as well. they don't always return one string and you have to concatenate the strings. using a stack to keep track of the element you are in will do the trick.
