The qualified name of the current node. For example, Name is bk:book for the element <bk:book>.
The name returned is dependent on the NodeType of the node. The following node types return the listed values. All other node types return an empty string.

Node Type

Name

Attribute

Element

The tag name.

EntityReference

The name of the entity referenced.

ProcessingInstruction

The target of the processing instruction.

XmlDeclaration

The literal string xml.

NoteNote

The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework 2.0. You can create a validating XmlReader instance by using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. For more information, see the Remarks section of the XmlReader reference page.

The following example reads an XML file and displays each of the nodes.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample
{
  private const String filename = "items.xml";

  public static void Main()
  {
     XmlTextReader txtreader = null;
     XmlValidatingReader reader = null;

     try
     {  
        //Load the reader with the data file and ignore all white space nodes.         
        txtreader = new XmlTextReader(filename);
        txtreader.WhitespaceHandling = WhitespaceHandling.None;

        //Implement the validating reader over the text reader. 
        reader = new XmlValidatingReader(txtreader);
        reader.ValidationType = ValidationType.None;

        //Parse the file and display each of the nodes. 
        while (reader.Read())
        {
           switch (reader.NodeType)
           {
             case XmlNodeType.Element:
               Console.Write("<{0}>", reader.Name);
               break;
             case XmlNodeType.Text:
               Console.Write(reader.Value);
               break;
             case XmlNodeType.CDATA:
               Console.Write("<![CDATA[{0}]]>", reader.Value);
               break;
             case XmlNodeType.ProcessingInstruction:
               Console.Write("<?{0} {1}?>", reader.Name, reader.Value);
               break;
             case XmlNodeType.Comment:
               Console.Write("<!--{0}-->", reader.Value);
               break;
             case XmlNodeType.XmlDeclaration:
               Console.Write("<?xml version='1.0'?>");
               break;
             case XmlNodeType.Document:
               break;
             case XmlNodeType.DocumentType:
               Console.Write("<!DOCTYPE {0} [{1}]", reader.Name, reader.Value);
               break;
             case XmlNodeType.EntityReference:
               Console.Write(reader.Name);
               break;
             case XmlNodeType.EndElement:
               Console.Write("</{0}>", reader.Name);
               break;
           }       
        }           
     }

     finally
     {
        if (reader!=null)
          reader.Close();
     }
  }
} // End class

The example uses the file, items.xml, as input.


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!-- This is a sample XML document -->
<!DOCTYPE Items [<!ENTITY number "123">]>
<Items>
  <Item>Test with an entity: &number;</Item>
  <Item>test with a child element <more/> stuff</Item>
  <Item>test with a CDATA section <![CDATA[<456>]]> def</Item>
  <Item>Test with a char entity: &#65;</Item>
  <!-- Fourteen chars in this element.-->
  <Item>1234567890ABCD</Item>
</Items>
