DisplayXmlFile - loading a XML file in a TreeView

' Display a XML file in a TreeView
' Note: requires Imports System.Xml
' Example: DisplayXmlFile("employees.xml", TreeView1)

Sub DisplayXmlFile(ByVal filename As String, ByVal tvw As TreeView)
    Dim xmldoc As New XmlDocument()
    ' Add it to the TreeView Nodes collection
    DisplayXmlNode(xmldoc, tvw.Nodes)
    ' Expand the root node.
End Sub

Sub DisplayXmlNode(ByVal xmlnode As XmlNode, ByVal nodes As TreeNodeCollection)
    ' Add a TreeView node for this XmlNode.
    ' (Using the node's Name is OK for most XmlNode types.)
    Dim tvNode As TreeNode = nodes.Add(xmlnode.Name)

    Select Case xmlnode.NodeType
        Case XmlNodeType.Element
            ' This is an element: Check whether there are attributes.
            If xmlnode.Attributes.Count > 0 Then

                Dim attrNode As TreeNode = tvNode.Nodes.Add("(ATTRIBUTES)")
                ' Add all the attributes as children of the new node.

                    ' Each node shows name and value.
                    attrNode.Nodes.Add(xmlAttr.Name & " = '" & xmlAttr.Value & _
            End If
