Use the XMLTextNode class with the IsA operator to test whether an XMLNode is an XMLTextNode.


The following XML is stored in a constant called kXML:

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
 	<Team name="Seagulls">
 		<Player name="Bob" position="1B" />
 		<Player name="Tom" position="2B" />
 	<Team name="Pigeons">
 		<Player name="Bill" position="1B" />
 		<Player name="Tim" position="2B" />
 	<Team name="Crows">
 		<Player name="Ben" position="1B" />
 		<Player name="Ty" position="2B" />

To add a text node to the first team node:

Dim xml As New XmlDocument(kXml)

// Create a Text node and assign it a value
Dim xt As XmlTextNode
xt = xml.CreateTextNode("")
xt.Value = "Maine"

// Add the Text node a node in the XML document
Dim child As XmlNode = xml.DocumentElement.FirstChild

Dim stateNode As XmlNode = child.AppendChild(xml.CreateElement("State"))

Dim xmlString As String = xml.ToString

The resulting XML:

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
     <Team name="Seagulls">
         <Player name="Bob" position="1B"/>
         <Player name="Tom" position="2B"/>
     <Team name="Pigeons">
         <Player name="Bill" position="1B"/>
         <Player name="Tim" position="2B"/>
     <Team name="Crows">
         <Player name="Ben" position="1B"/>
         <Player name="Ty" position="2B"/>
