XmlReader.LocalName Property

When overridden in a derived class, gets the local name of the current node.

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

public abstract string LocalName { get; }
/** @property */
public abstract String get_LocalName ()

public abstract function get LocalName () : String

Not applicable.

Property Value

The name of the current node with the prefix removed. For example, LocalName is book for the element <bk:book>. For node types that do not have a name (like Text, Comment, and so on), this property returns String.Empty.

The following example displays the local name of each node, and, if they exist, the prefix and namespace URI.

XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create("book2.xml");

// Parse the file.  If they exist, display the prefix and 
// namespace URI of each node.
while (reader.Read()) {
  if (reader.IsStartElement()) {
    if (reader.Prefix==String.Empty)
      Console.WriteLine("<{0}>", reader.LocalName);
    else {
      Console.Write("<{0}:{1}>", reader.Prefix, reader.LocalName);
      Console.WriteLine(" The namespace URI is " + reader.NamespaceURI);
    }
  }
}       
reader.Close();

The example uses the file, book2.xml, as input.

<book xmlns:bk='urn:samples'>
  <title>Pride And Prejudice</title>
  <bk:genre>novel</bk:genre>
</book>
