XML sources - How to load many into one grid

I was just curious if there was a way to take many XML data sources and load them into 1 grid?

Each of the XML sources has the same tags - so, there wouldn't be a mismatch. They are just in chunks because of volume.

well, you could make yourself a helper function that concatenates the xml from each of your data sources, wraps them all together under a root node, creates a new xml document from that result, then pass that into the xml table backing your grid.

I didn't actually test it, but the following IE pseudo-code should be close to workable. =)

function createXmlDocumentFromStrings() {
var xmlString = "<xml>";
for (var i = 0; i < arguments.length; i++) {
xmlString += arguments[i];
// or arguments[i].xml if passing in xml documents
xmlString += "</xml>";

var xml = new ActiveXObject('MSXML2.DOMDocument');
xml.async = false;
return xml;

Thanks a bunch ... I'll give it a shot and modify it as needed. It's really helpful.
