XmlNodeReader.MoveToElement Method

Moves to the element that contains the current attribute node.

Namespace: System.Xml
Assembly: System.Xml (in system.xml.dll)

public override bool MoveToElement ()
public boolean MoveToElement ()
public override function MoveToElement () : boolean

Return Value

true if the reader is positioned on an attribute (the reader moves to the element that owns the attribute); false if the reader is not positioned on an attribute (the position of the reader does not change).

NoteNote

In the Microsoft .NET Framework version 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 Creating XML Readers.

Use this method to return to an element after navigating through its attributes. This method moves the reader to one of the following node types: Element, DocumentType, or XmlDeclaration.

The following example reads all the attributes on the root node.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample 
{
  public static void Main()
  {
    XmlNodeReader reader = null;

    try
    {
       //Create and load the XML document.
       XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
       doc.LoadXml("<book genre='novel' ISBN='1-861003-78' publicationdate='1987'> " +
                   "</book>"); 

       //Load the XmlNodeReader 
       reader = new XmlNodeReader(doc);
  
       //Read the attributes on the root element.
       reader.MoveToContent();
       if (reader.HasAttributes){
         for (int i=0; i<reader.AttributeCount; i++){
            reader.MoveToAttribute(i);
            Console.WriteLine("{0} = {1}", reader.Name, reader.Value);
         }
         //Return the reader to the book element.
         reader.MoveToElement();
       }

     } 

     finally 
     {
        if (reader != null)
          reader.Close();
      }
  }
  
} // End class
