    It is a greate article for .net user.

    But it needs to open any rss web site not which contains only .xml extensions.

    eg. when i wite http://news.yahoo.com/rss the program above was not work.

    If author gives such actions then it will become very great.

    Hey, why you have to make a story out of it, can you go straight to the point?, it is really boring to read the first crap paragraph. When somebody comes to this page is to get the technical part as easy as you can provide it. No offense. And thanks for providing this control.

    a easy way to deal rss feed by using rsstoolkit.dll http://www.codeplex.com/ASPNETRSSToolkit/  

    I have another question:

    if I want to show contentType of each item, how can I write the binding sentence,

    <%# DataBinder.EvalContainer.DataItem, "msdn:contentType") %>  ?

    but it doesn't work.

    Does anyone else have some suggestions? Thanks.

    Reading some of these comments made me chuckle. People are expecting everything to be spoon-fed and immediately configured to work with their environments. FFS learn the framework instead of expecting someone else to do it for you.

    If you dont know how to debug an app or how a dataset works, maybe you should try and master the basics first. Ya im looking at you guys: arjun, kyle... well actually most of the people that responded Tongue Out

    You provided a great foundation for an RSS Reader. Good job and Thank you!

    @Kiran:  Are you using a proper RSS feed?

  • User profile image

    This was easy? If this is easy, then I think this is way beyond my learning ability. I'm just gonna go uninstall VB and go outside and chase cars or something...

  • User profile image

    @Jason:  Chasings cars, while fun, isn't a good idea.

    What did you have issues with?  I may be able to help out.

    Really nice article.. It is very helpful.

    The people writing rude comments shouldn't take their frustrations out of the author.  First of all, if you don't like the article, than you don't have to read it, the author is doing you a service by writing it at all and isn't required to do so.  If you don't understand or if it isn't what you are looking for, go find another article or write one yourself.

    Why can't we just use Windows RSS Platform?

  • User profile image

    @LSiva this is an article from 2006, the RSS feed uses here is no longer valid it appears.  You can use the C4F feed if you'd like.

    msdn.microsoft.com/.../rss.xml . Please share your inputs.
