XmlReader.IsDefault Property

When overridden in a derived class, gets a value indicating whether the current node is an attribute that was generated from the default value defined in the DTD or schema.

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

public virtual bool IsDefault { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the current node is an attribute whose value was generated from the default value defined in the DTD or schema; false if the attribute value was explicitly set.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

An XmlReader method was called before a previous asynchronous operation finished. In this case, InvalidOperationException is thrown with the message “An asynchronous operation is already in progress.”

IsDefault always returns false for implementations of XmlReader that do not support schema or DTD information. This property applies only to an attribute node.

The following example displays all attributes on the root element.

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

public class Sample 
{
  public static void Main(){

    // Create the reader.
    XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create("book4.xml");

    reader.MoveToContent();

    // Display each of the attribute nodes, including default attributes.
    while (reader.MoveToNextAttribute()){
        if (reader.IsDefault)
          Console.Write("(default attribute) ");
        Console.WriteLine("{0} = {1}", reader.Name, reader.Value);  
    }           
  
    //Close the reader.
    reader.Close();     
  
  }
} // End class
