XmlReader.ResolveEntity Method

When overridden in a derived class, resolves the entity reference for EntityReference nodes.

Namespace:  System.Xml
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
public abstract void ResolveEntity()
ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

The reader is not positioned on an EntityReference node; this implementation of the reader cannot resolve entities (CanResolveEntity returns false).

If the reader is positioned on an EntityReference node (XmlNodeType.EntityReference), if Read is called after calling this method, the entity replacement text is parsed. When the entity replacement text is finished, an EndEntity node is returned to close the entity reference scope.

NoteNote

After calling this method, if the entity is part of an attribute value, you must call ReadAttributeValue to step into the entity.
