get a list of products [SOLVED]
« on: July 25, 2016, 12:59:56 AM »
Hi

I have searched around but confused with all of the ideas with what i am seeking to do. I want to create a large list of products (name and price) and then be able to use a search box to query them and return a list of items? what would be the best approach for this? Linq or arraylist? or none of them.

Cheers

Nick

I have looked at Datamaker and it seems like i can achieve what im after, but can you reference or pull in an external XML file and store it?

Just found out I can pull external XML using the WWW object.
