ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

ArgumentException

The parameter is an empty string.

This method is functionally equivalent executing the following::name XPath expression from the current node. It provides a quick way to find a named element in the XML document. It advances the reader to the next following element that matches the specified name and returns true if a matching element is found. Using the example below, the reader would read to the first instance of the specified element while reading forward.

<!--"sample.xml"-->
<?xml version="1.0">
   <items>
      <item xmls="urn:1"/>
   </items>
</xml>
XmlTextReader reader = new XmlTextReader("sample.xml");

reader.ReadToFollowing("item");

This method can be called on all node types.
