C# - Get the text inside tags using HTML Agility Pack

c# html-agility-pack

Question

I have used the following code to parse HTML document & store it as CSV file.

string actuald=null;
string data1 = File.ReadAllText("E://text.html");
HtmlDocument doc = new HtmlDocument();
doc.LoadHtml(data1);
HtmlNodeCollection col = doc.DocumentNode.SelectNodes("//pre");

foreach (HtmlNode node in col)
{
     actuald=node.Attributes[""].Value;
}
File.WriteAllText("E://text.csv",actuald);
Console.WriteLine("Data Converted");
Console.ReadKey();

in the html document, the content i need to extract lies between < pre > < /pre > . the content of my file looks like

<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>NCEDC_Search_Results</TITLE></HEAD><BODY>Your search parameters are:<ul>
<li>start_time=1973/01/01,00:00:00
<li>end_time=2037/01/01,00:00:00
<li>minimum_magnitude=3.0
<li>maximum_magnitude=10
<li>etype=E
<li>rflag=A,F,H,I
<li>system=selected
<li>format=ncread
</ul>
<PRE>

</pre></html>

but in the html doc I have no class specified under any of the html tags? What content should I give in the attributes[""]?

Accepted Answer

To get text inside a node:

actuald = node.InnerText;

To get text including the HTML tags

actuald = node.InnerHtml;
