simplexml reading nodes from an xml file


I had a problem with simplexml reading nodes from an xml file. It always return an SimpleXML-Object but not the text inside the node.

Example:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Test>
    <Id>123</Id>
</Test>

Reading this xml into a variable called $xml and then doing the following
<?php
$myId
= $xml->Id;
?>
Did not return 123 in $myId, but instead I got a SimpleXMLElement Object.

The solution is simple, when you know it. Use explicit string conversion.
<?php
$myId
= (string)$xml->Id;
?>
