Gets the next attribute of the parent element.
Assembly: System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
Attributes are maintained in the XML tree in the order that they were added to the element. When a collection of attributes is returned by Attributes, they are returned in the order that they were added, and are not sorted. When you request the next attribute through this property, this property returns the attribute that was added after this attribute.
If this attribute does not have a parent, or if there is no next attribute, then this property returns Nothing.
The following example shows how to iterate through the attributes of an element using this property.
Dim root As XElement = <Root Att1="1" Att2="2" Att3="3" Att4="4"/> Dim att As XAttribute = root.FirstAttribute Dim val As Boolean = True Do Console.WriteLine(att) att = att.NextAttribute Loop While (Not (att Is Nothing))
This example produces the following output:
Att1="1" Att2="2" Att3="3" Att4="4"
