XmlTextReader Constructor (TextReader)

Initializes a new instance of the XmlTextReader class with the specified TextReader.

Namespace:  System.Xml
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
Public Sub New ( _
	input As TextReader _


Type: System.IO.TextReader

The TextReader containing the XML data to read.


In the .NET Framework 2.0 release, the recommended practice is to create XmlReader instances using the XmlReader.Create method. This allows you to take full advantage of the new features introduced in this release. For more information, see Creating XML Readers.

It is assumed that the TextReader is already set to the correct encoding. This is used by clients that have already read some things from the stream in a multi-part MIME scenario.

The following example loads an XML string into the XmlTextReader object using the StringReader class.

Imports System
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Xml

public class Sample 

  public shared sub Main()

    Dim xmlData as string 
    xmlData = "<book>" & _
              "  <title>Oberon's Legacy</title>" & _
              "  <price>5.95</price>" & _

    ' Create the reader. 
    Dim reader as XmlTextReader = new XmlTextReader(new StringReader(xmlData))
    reader.WhitespaceHandling = WhitespaceHandling.None

    ' Display each element node.
    while reader.Read()
       select case reader.NodeType
         case XmlNodeType.Element
           Console.Write("<{0}>", reader.Name)
         case XmlNodeType.Text
         case XmlNodeType.EndElement
           Console.Write("</{0}>", reader.Name)
       end select       
    end while           

    ' Close the reader.
  end sub
end class
