Namespace:  System.Xml.Xsl

Public MustInherit Class XsltMessageEncounteredEventArgs _
	Inherits EventArgs

The XsltMessageEncounteredEventArgs type exposes the following members.

Protected methodXsltMessageEncounteredEventArgsInitializes a new instance of the XsltMessageEncounteredEventArgs class.

Public propertyMessageGets the contents of the xsl:message element.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The XsltMessageEncountered event occurs during XSLT processing when an xsl:message is specified in the style sheet.


If the terminate attribute is set to "yes", the XSLT processor stops executing the style sheet stops after the message is processed.

The following example uses the XsltMessageEncounteredEventArgs to display xsl:message content to the console. The sample writes the following message to the console: Message received: Author name is not in the correct format <author><name>Plato</name></author>.

Public Class Sample    

  Public Shared Sub Main() 

    ' Create the XslCompiledTransform object and load the style sheet.
    Dim xslt As New XslCompiledTransform()

    Dim argList As New XsltArgumentList()
    AddHandler argList.XsltMessageEncountered, AddressOf MessageCallBack

    ' Load the file to transform.
    Dim doc As New XPathDocument("books.xml")

    ' Transform the file.
    xslt.Transform(doc, argList, XmlWriter.Create("output.xml"))

  End Sub 'Main     

  Private Shared Sub MessageCallBack(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As XsltMessageEncounteredEventArgs) 
    Console.WriteLine("Message received: {0}", e.Message)

  End Sub 'MessageCallBack
End Class 'Sample
