XmlValidatingReader.MoveToNextAttribute Method

Moves to the next attribute.

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

'Declaration
Public Overrides Function MoveToNextAttribute As Boolean

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if there is a next attribute; false if there are no more attributes.

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The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework 2.0.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.

If the current node is an element node, this method is equivalent to MoveToFirstAttribute. If MoveToNextAttribute returns true, the reader moves to the next attribute; otherwise, the position of the reader does not change.

The following example reads an XML fragment.

Imports System
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Xml

public class Sample 

  public shared sub Main()

    'Create the validating reader. 
    Dim txtreader as XmlTextReader = new XmlTextReader("attrs.xml")
    Dim reader as XmlValidatingReader = new XmlValidatingReader(txtreader)

    'Read the genre attribute.
    reader.MoveToContent()
    reader.MoveToFirstAttribute()
    Dim genre As String = reader.Value
    Console.WriteLine("The genre value: " & genre)

    'Close the reader.
    reader.Close()

  End sub
End class
