Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi guys,

I'm trying to get search results from Nominatim in XML format. Here's my javascript code:

function requestToNominatim(){

    xmlhttp = getXMLHttpRequest();
        if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status==200){
            var response = xmlhttp.responseXML;

    var q = document.getElementById('q').value;
    xmlhttp.open("GET","http://localhost/nominatim/search.php?format=xml&q=" + q,true);

The alert displays "[object Document]". However, when I display "responseText" I get the xml... Do you have any idea about getting directly the XMLDocument from responseXML?

Thanks! Lucas

Finally, I ended up using JSON instead of XML. It's working as good and easier to manipulate.
