XmlTextReader.MoveToElement Method

Moves to the element that contains the current attribute node.

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

public override 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).

NoteNote

Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, we recommend that you create XmlReader instances by using the XmlReader.Create method to take advantage of new functionality.

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.

public void DisplayAttributes(XmlReader reader)
{
  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.
  }
}
