You are required to implement a Simple Salary Reader System (SSRS). The name and salary of different people is given in the attached XML file. Write a console based application with following requirements:

Program will take name of a person as input. It will then read the XML file to search the said person. If person is found, its salary will be read from the file and displayed on console as shown in output window given below. However, if person is not found, system will display “Person not found” message.

To Read XMLSalaries file from the project folder, you can use following statement:

string Dir = System.IO.Path.GetFullPath(@"..\..\..\");

The above statement will return the path of your project folder (the folder containing XMLSalaries.xml file). So, in above case “Dir” variable will contain “E:\\SalaryReader\\”. Now you can append name of the file (i.e. XMLSalaries.xml) with “Dir” variable and read it.

code to uplode kr do

Dear Friends,

It is a very easy assignment. I have submitted my assignment.  Here is an idea for you


  • Get XML file from reader
  • Get input from user
  • Use while loop
  • While (xmlreader.Read())
  • In while loop get the attributes from XML file
  • Use IF condition to compare the user input name and the name you get from GetAttribute
  • Get the salary if the match found using GetAttribute and print it on screen
  • Set a flag for match found or not and use it outside of while loop to print message "Oops ! no person  . . . . . . ."

For further help see handouts page # 48 -49

I hope it will be helpful for you.

string Dir = System.IO.Path.GetFullPath(@"..\..\..\"); iska kya karna ha bhai


Share Some Code

koi to code uplode kr da  

i am facing problem in the code, By code working 90% fine, It reads the file and print the name with salary the way as required, but it also prints the Oops message with it.

With Correct Name

With Wrong Name

My Code So far is

static void Main(string[] args)
string personName = "";
Console.Write("Enter Name of Person: ");
personName = Console.ReadLine();
string DIR = Path.GetFullPath(@"Some_Path_To\XMLSalaries.xml");
XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create(DIR);
while (reader.Read())
if ((reader.NodeType == XmlNodeType.Element) && (reader.Name == "Salary"))
if (reader.GetAttribute("Name") == personName && reader.HasAttributes)
if (reader.HasAttributes)
Console.WriteLine("Salary of " + personName + " = " + reader.GetAttribute("CurrentSalary"));
Console.WriteLine("Oops! no person with the name \"" + personName + "\" was found.");
