Sgml reader for WP7

Sometimes you have to use html pages to get the data of that website in your application. For .net applications there was a great library http://developer.mindtouch.com/Community/SgmlReader to transform an html page to an XmlDocument / XDocument and makes it easy to get the data out. Unfortunately the library was not available for Windows Phone. I looked for an alternative but couldn’t find anything useful., lucky the source code was also avialable and I modified the code to be compatible with Windows Phone. I put the code on codeplex so you can easily use it in your projects to. The link is http://sgmlwp7.codeplex.com/

The api of the wp7 version didn’t changed so you can still use it by

 

XDocument FromHtml(TextReader reader) {

    // setup SGMLReader
    Sgml.SgmlReader sgmlReader = new Sgml.SgmlReader();
    sgmlReader.DocType = "HTML";
    sgmlReader.CaseFolding = Sgml.CaseFolding.ToLower;
    sgmlReader.InputStream = reader;

    // create document
    XDocument doc = XDocument.Load(sgmlReader);
    return doc;
}

Hope it helps!
