Skips the children of the current node.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
In the following XML input if the reader is positioned on the <a> node or any of its attributes, calling Skip positions the reader to the <b> node.
If the reader is positioned on a leaf node already (such as the <x> node or the text node abc), calling Skip is the same as calling Read.
<a name="bob" age="123"> <x/>abc<y/> </a> <b> ... </b>
This method checks for well-formed XML.
The XmlReader implementation determines whether or not the Skip method will expand external entities. The following table describes whether the external entities are expanded for the various types of XmlReader objects.
