AX 2012 : Remove an XML node through X++

Following code snippet may help you to remove an XML node from an XML message string.

private str removeXMLTag(str xml)
    XmlDocument         doc = new XmlDocument();
    XmlElement          nodeScript;
    XmlNode             parentNode, childNode;
    XmlNodeList         xmlScriptList,

    int                 i,j;


    // Get the root element and its child nodes
    nodeScript = doc.getNamedElement("SalesOrder");
    xmlScriptList = nodeScript.childNodes();

    for(i=0; i < xmlScriptList.length(); i++)
        parentNode = xmlScriptList.item(i);
        childNodeList = parentNode.childNodes();

        for (j=0; j < childNodeList.length(); j++)
            childNode = childNodeList.item(j);
            if (childNode.selectSingleNode("Notes"))

    return doc.outerXml();

This will remove DocuRef node along with its child nodes. 

Original XML message

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>                            
<SalesOrder xmlns = "">                                        
<DocuRef class = "entity">
        <Notes>Business Name</Notes>


XML message after node being removed

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>                            
<SalesOrder xmlns = "">
