DWML - Digital Weather Markup Language

Providing the public, government agencies, and commercial enterprises with data from the National Weather Service’s (NWS) digital forecast database. This service, which is defined in a Service Description Document, provides NWS customers and partners the ability to request National Digital Forecast Databas (NDFD) data over the internet and receive the information back in an XML format. The NDFD XML language is called Digital Weather Markup Language (DWML).

NuGet Package ID LiquidTechnologies.XmlObjects.DWML
Description An object model for the DWML standard providing strongly typed classes that can be serialized/deserializsed to XML.

Supported Platforms
  • .Net Standard 2.0 and above
  • .Net Core 2.0 and above
  • .Net Framework 4.0 and above
  • Create a new Visual Studio Project
  • Add a reference to the nuget package @myModel.NugetID
  • Create an LxSerializer<> for your root element
    • If the root element in your XML document is 'MyRoot' then the object generated to represent it should be called 'MyRootElm'*1
    • Hint - In Visual Studio placing the caret within the code LxSerializer<MyRootElm> and pressing Alt-Shift-F10 will give you the option to add the appropriate using statement.
  • Use the LxSerializer to read in the XML Document using the Deserialize method
  • Setting a break point after this line will allow you to explore the structure of the object in the visual studio watch windows.
  • Use the LxSerializer to write in the XML Document back out using the Serialize method
*1 - If the element contains non-alphanumeric characters, then the name may be slightly different.
LxSerializer<ExamplePersonElm> serializer = LxSerializer<ExamplePersonElm>();

// Reading an XML file
ExamplePersonElm person = serializer.Deserialize("MyPersonData.xml");
foreach(ExampleFriendElm friend in person.Friends)
{
    Console.Write("Name = " + friend.Name);
}

// Edit the objects
ExampleFriendElm newFriend = new ExampleFriendElm();
newFriend.Name = "Joe Blogs";
person.Friends.Add(newFriend);

// Write the new data out as XML
serializer.Serialize("MyNewPersonData.xml", person);
