Never Hide Gaming

Need help with pulling XML data into HTML

Recommended Posts

Hello and thank you to anyone and everyone that responds. I am very new to XML and have done some of the tutorials, but I am having trouble getting the information to pull. The XML file is automatically updated by a website and I would like to pull information off of it to put on my own website.

 

First off, do I need to re-load the XML file on my site first? Someone said that I was going to have to do this but I am not sure how. I feel as though this could be the error that I am facing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is my XML file

This is the code that I am trying to use. If I can get one thing to actually pull, then I can figure the rest out. I have been using the Tryit Editor so far to test everything before populating my site.

<!DOCTYPE html><html><head><style>table, th, td {    border: 1px solid black;    border-collapse:collapse;}th, td {    padding: 5px;}</style></head><body><script>if (window.XMLHttpRequest)  {// code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari  xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();  }else  {// code for IE6, IE5  xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");  }xmlhttp.open("GET","gamebattles.majorleaguegaming.com/xboxone/call-of-duty-ghosts/team/never-hide/stats.xml",false);xmlhttp.send();xmlDoc=xmlhttp.responseXML; document.write("<table><tr><th>Team</th><th>Result</th></tr>");var x=xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("recentMatches");for (i=0;i<x.length;i++)  {   document.write("<tr><td>");  document.write(x[i].getElementsByTagName("name")[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue);  document.write("</td><td>");  document.write(x[i].getElementsByTagName("result")[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue);  document.write("</td></tr>");  }document.write("</table>");</script></body></html>

Sorry that this is so long and drawn out, but thank you very much in advance.

You're missing the http:// in the URL on this line of code:

xmlhttp.open("GET","gamebattles.majorleaguegaming.com/xboxone/call-of-duty-ghosts/team/never-hide/stats.xml",false);

That is a necessary but not sufficient condition for this to work. The other necessary condition is that their server sends a response with a header indicating that cross-domain AJAX requests are allowed. If they are not, then you can't use AJAX to load this data.
