Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
public static XmlReader Create( Stream input, XmlReaderSettings settings, XmlParserContext inputContext )
- Type: System.IO.Stream
The stream containing the XML data.
The XmlReader scans the first bytes of the stream looking for a byte order mark or other sign of encoding. When encoding is determined, the encoding is used to continue reading the stream, and processing continues parsing the input as a stream of (Unicode) characters.
