reading value from XML formatted response from jquery ajax

I am sending a request to a URL using

. The response text returns with the following XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<cmd>Requested Item</cmd>
<myValue>this is the text i need to get with jquery</myValue>

I need to get the text inside the

<myValue>this is the text i need to get with jquery</myValue>

I have tried the following code inside $.get() function:

var x, i, attnode, xmlDoc, txt;
xmlDoc = xml.responseXML;
x = xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName('data');

but there is no value in variable

Just wrap the xml with $ (jQuery) function, then you can use .find to find the node. Something like $(xml).find('myValue').html()

Demo (In this demo I'm not using ajax but the principle is the same):

var xml = '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>' +
    '<myNode>' + 
    '<cmd>Requested Item</cmd>' +
    '<myValue>this is the text i need to get with jquery</myValue>' +
    '<res>OK</res>' + 

var x = $(xml).find('myValue').html();
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
