XmlReader.MoveToElement Method

When overridden in a derived class, moves to the element that contains the current attribute node.

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

public abstract bool MoveToElement()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
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).

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 displays all attributes on the current node.


if (reader.HasAttributes) {
  Console.WriteLine("Attributes of <" + reader.Name + ">");
  for (int i = 0; i < reader.AttributeCount; i++) {
    reader.MoveToAttribute(i);
    Console.Write(" {0}={1}", reader.Name, reader.Value);
  }
reader.MoveToElement(); // Moves the reader back to the element node.
}
