How do I get the sibling values of a node

If I know ref (GAS108) how do I get price ?

When you post code on the forums, you need to format it so it will display correctly.

You can highlight your code, then use the </> button in the editor window, or you can place three backticks ``` (top left key on US/UK keyboards) on a line above your code, and three on a line below your code. I find this approach easier, but unfortunately some European and other keyboards don’t have that character.

Using SimpleXML you can query the XML with an xpath expression like so:

$xml = new SimpleXMLElement($xmlstr);

// Returns an array of the matched SimpleXMLElements
$result = $xml->xpath('//ref[text()="GAS108"]/parent::property/price');

A simpler expression doing the same thing is: //property[ref="GAS108"]/price
