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The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework 2.0.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 NIB: Validating XML Data with XmlReader.

This property is most commonly used for error reporting, but can be called at any time. The starting value for this property is 1.

The position indicated is the first character of text in the markup.

<root>
 abc<tag/>
</root>

On the first line of the preceding XML text, a LinePosition of 2 corresponds to the character r; on the second line, a LinePosition of 5 corresponds to the character t; and on the third line, a LinePosition of 3 corresponds to the character r.

Combined with LineNumber, a value of 1,1 indicates the start of the document.
