Hello @all!
I try to output the nodes plus additional information of an xml-file.
Here is the code with wich I do it:

And that's part of the output I get:
infospace
NodeName: #text, NodeValue:
NodeName: subspace
NodeName: #text, NodeValue:
NodeName: EWGR
NodeName: #text, NodeValue:
NodeName: childNodes
NodeName: #text, NodeValue:
NodeName: childNode
NodeName: #text, NodeValue: C1
NodeName: #text, NodeValue:
NodeName: childNode
NodeName: #text, NodeValue: C2
NodeName: #text, NodeValue:
NodeName: childNode
NodeName: #text, NodeValue: C3
NodeName: #text, NodeValue:
NodeName: #text, NodeValue:
NodeName: #text, NodeValue:
NodeName: EWGR
NodeName: #text, NodeValue:
My question: How can I suppress the lines where the NodeName is #text and the NodeValue is empty?
First I tried this one:


Then I tried this one:

But nothing worked...
Can anybody help me with this problem, please?
Thanks a lot for your help in advance!
