The location from which the node was loaded or String.Empty if the node has no base URI. Attribute nodes have the same base URI as their owner element. If an attribute node does not have an owner element, BaseURI returns String.Empty.
A networked XML document is comprised of chunks of data aggregated using various World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standard inclusion mechanisms and therefore contains nodes that come from different places. The BaseURI tells you where these nodes came from.
For additional information on BaseURI and how it behaves with other node types, see XmlNode.BaseURI.
This property is a Microsoft extension to the Document Object Model (DOM).
The following example displays information on the attribute node, including its base URI.
The sample uses the file, baseuri.xml, as input.
