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.

This method can be called on all node types.

The following example reads the ISBN attribute on each book node.

using (XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create("books.xml")) {
    reader.ReadToFollowing("book");
    do {
       Console.WriteLine("ISBN: {0}", reader.GetAttribute("ISBN")); 
    } while (reader.ReadToNextSibling("book"));
}
