NoteNote

The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework 2.0. You can create a validating XmlReader instance by using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. For more information, see the Remarks section of the XmlReader reference page.

The following table lists node types that have a value to return.

Node Type

Whitespace

The following example reads in XML with various data types and displays each of the nodes.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample
{

  public static void Main()
  {

    //Create the validating reader.
    XmlTextReader txtreader = new XmlTextReader("book1.xml");
    txtreader.WhitespaceHandling = WhitespaceHandling.None;
    XmlValidatingReader reader = new XmlValidatingReader(txtreader);
    reader.ValidationType = ValidationType.None;

    //Parse the file and each node and its value. 
    while (reader.Read())
    {
      if (reader.HasValue)
        Console.WriteLine("({0})  {1}={2}", reader.NodeType, reader.Name, reader.Value);
      else
        Console.WriteLine("({0}) {1}", reader.NodeType, reader.Name);

    }

    //Close the reader.
    reader.Close();

  }
