    JavaScript: Cannot get @var-value from xml-file because var is reserved?

    hey everyone!

     

    I am trying to get some weather data from the openweathermap-webservice. Among the data is a the iconCode too in order to visualize the current weather condition.

    Here is the xml-response of the given request:

     

     

    request-URL: http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/forecast?q=linz&units=metric&type=accurate&mode=xml&APPID=ef67184baece136977466e7894b2a614

    If I add the line var iconCode = item.symbol.@var, I get the following syntax error:

     

     

    I think I get the error because "var" is a reserved string in JavaScript. But how do I get the iconCode from the xmlPage then? Any suggestions?

     

     

    Thank you so much in advance for helping me out!

    Best regards,
