Parameters

input

The stream containing the XML data.

The XmlReader scans the first bytes of the stream looking for a byte order mark or other sign of encoding. When encoding is determined, the encoding is used to continue reading the stream, and processing continues parsing the input as a stream of (Unicode) characters.

settings

The XmlReaderSettings object used to configure the new XmlReader instance. This value can be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Return Value

An XmlReader object to read the XML data.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

The input value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

By default an XmlUrlResolver with no credentials is used to access any external resources such as a document type definition (DTD), entities, schemas, and so on. If the external resource is located on a network resource that requires authentication, use the XmlReaderSettings.XmlResolver property to specify an XmlResolver with the necessary credentials.

Security noteSecurity Note:

You can use one of the following methods to control which resources the XmlReader can access:

Restrict the resources that the XmlReader can access by setting the XmlResolver property to an XmlSecureResolver object.

-or-

Do not allow the XmlReader to open any external resources by setting the XmlResolver property to a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The created XmlReader object expands entity references and performs XML normalization of new line characters.
