Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the node on which the reader is currently positioned can have a Value; otherwise, false.

NoteNote

In the .NET Framework 2.0, the recommended practice is to create XmlReader instances using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. This allows you to take full advantage of all the new features introduced in the .NET Framework. For more information, see the Remarks section in the XmlReader reference page.

The following table lists node types that have a value to return.

Node Type

Value

Attribute

The value of the attribute.

CDATA

The content of the CDATA section.

Comment

The content of the comment.

DocumentType

The internal subset.

ProcessingInstruction

The entire content, excluding the target.

SignificantWhitespace

The white space between markup in a mixed content model.

Text

The content of the text node.

Whitespace

The white space between markup.

The following example displays the value for every node which can have a value.
