The problem has to do with the fact that "gd:name" has no actual content as defined by the Chilkat XML API. See http://www.chilkatsoft.com/refdoc/csXmlRef.html

The "gd:name" node has one child node -- namely "gd:fullName", and it in turn has the content "Fitzwilliam Darcy".

    <entry gd:etag="contactEtag">
        <app:edited xmlns:app="http://www.w3.org/2007/app">2008-12-10T04:45:03.331Z</app:edited>
        <category scheme="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#kind" term="http://schemas.google.com/contact/2008#contact" />
        <title>Fitzwilliam Darcy</title>
            <gd:fullName>Fitzwilliam Darcy</gd:fullName>

If the "gd:name" node specified a type of "xml", then the getElement("gd:name") method call would return the full XML contained within it.

For example:

        <gd:name type="xml">
            <gd:fullName>Fitzwilliam Darcy</gd:fullName>

If the Chilkat Atom API does not provide a means to directly access the XML content, then you may instead use the Chlikat XML API directly for parsing the XML.

thank you !!

but atom is much better to use than xml 
chilkat-atom has  
addElementXml(), updateElementXml()
but there is no getElementXml()

is there any plan to upgrade atom-active-x ?

What do you mean by "not working". We cannot read your mind...

<gd:name> <gd:fullname> Darcy </gd:fullname> </gd:name>

? o_entry.getElement("gd:Name",0)
i expect " <gd:fullname> Darcy </gd:fullname>"
but the result is empty(not null)
? o_entry.getElement("gd:fullName",0)
i expect "Darcy"
but the result is empty(not null)

when i change sample as
<gd:name> Darcy </gd:name>

then it is ok, returns Darcy

Your first example appears to be malformed XML, so that could be causing the problem (you are missing a slash on the closing <gd:name> tag:

<gd:name> <gd:fullname> Darcy </gd:fullname> <gd:name>

Should be:

<gd:name> <gd:fullname> Darcy </gd:fullname> </gd:name>

sorry, it is just a mis-spelling.(i edited)

but i tested with a real data from google , again, it returns empty string.

The samples you posted above have been badly mangled, making it difficult to use for testing/experimentation. Make sure you put your code and XML in <pre></pre> tags.

Also, can you confirm that you are using the latest version of the ChilkatXml library? The DLL date should be Dec. 2012.

Is there a feed URL that can be used for testing? Otherwise, the XML file is needed.

(Mar 26 '13 at 14:02) chilkat ♦♦

version : 9.4.0(dec 2012)

source-code and attached file emailed to support@chilkatsoft.com,

please check..
