public virtual bool MoveToFollowing (
	string localName,
	string namespaceURI
)
public boolean MoveToFollowing (
	String localName, 
	String namespaceURI

Not applicable.

Parameters

localName

The local name of the element.

namespaceURI

Return Value

true if the XPathNavigator moved successfully; otherwise false.

If the MoveToFollowing method returns false, the position of the XPathNavigator is unchanged.

In the following example, the XPathNavigator is moved from the root of the contosoBooks.xml file to the first price element.

XPathDocument document = new XPathDocument("contosoBooks.xml");
XPathNavigator navigator = document.CreateNavigator();

navigator.MoveToFollowing("price", "http://www.contoso.com/books");

Console.WriteLine("Position: {0}", navigator.Name);
Console.WriteLine(navigator.OuterXml);

The example takes the contosoBooks.xml file as an input.
