XmlDocumentType.Notations Property

Gets the collection of XmlNotation nodes present in the document type declaration.

Namespace:  System.Xml
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
'Declaration
Public ReadOnly Property Notations As XmlNamedNodeMap

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNamedNodeMap
An XmlNamedNodeMap containing the XmlNotation nodes. The returned XmlNamedNodeMap is read-only.

The order in which the notations are returned is not based on the order in which these items may appear in the document. The order is also not guaranteed to be the same between similar documents, or between different implementations or versions of the class.

The following example displays information about the notations declared in the XML document.

Imports System
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Xml

public class Sample

  private const filename as String = "doment.xml"

  public shared sub Main()
    Dim doc as XmlDocument = new XmlDocument()
    doc.Load(filename)

    Console.WriteLine("Display information on all notations...")     
    Dim nMap as XmlNamedNodeMap = doc.DocumentType.Notations
    DisplayNotations(nMap)      
  end sub

  public shared sub DisplayNotations(nMap as XmlNamedNodeMap)
     Dim i as integer   
     for i = 0 to nMap.Count - 1
        Dim note as XmlNotation = CType(nMap.Item(i), XmlNotation)
        Console.Write("{0} ", note.NodeType)
        Console.Write("{0} ", note.Name)
        Console.Write("{0} ", note.PublicId)
        Console.Write("{0} ", note.SystemId)
        Console.WriteLine()
     next
  end sub            
end class

The example uses the file doment.xml as input.
