XmlNodeList::Count Property

Gets the number of nodes in the XmlNodeList.

Namespace:  System.Xml
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
public:
virtual property int Count {
	int get () abstract;
}

Property Value

Type: System::Int32
The number of nodes in the XmlNodeList.

The following example creates a XmlDocument object and uses the GetElementsByTagName method and the resulting XmlNodeList to display all the book titles.

#using <System.Xml.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::IO;
using namespace System::Xml;

int main()
{
   XmlDocument^ doc = gcnew XmlDocument;
   doc->Load( "2books.xml" );

   // Get and display all the book titles.
   XmlElement^ root = doc->DocumentElement;
   XmlNodeList^ elemList = root->GetElementsByTagName( "title" );
   for ( int i = 0; i < elemList->Count; i++ )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( elemList[ i ]->InnerXml );
   }
}

The example uses the file 2books.xml as input.
