The following example parses an XML fragment. Each node is displayed, including its depth, line number, and line position.


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

public class Sample{

  public static void Main(){

    // Create the XML fragment to be parsed.
    string xmlFrag  = 
    @"<book>
           <misc>
              <style>paperback</style>
              <pages>240</pages>
           </misc>
        </book>
    ";

    // Create the XmlNamespaceManager.
    XmlNamespaceManager nsmgr = new XmlNamespaceManager(new NameTable());

    // Create the XmlParserContext.
    XmlParserContext context = new XmlParserContext(null, nsmgr, null, XmlSpace.None);

    // Create the reader.
    XmlValidatingReader reader = new XmlValidatingReader(xmlFrag, XmlNodeType.Element, context);

    IXmlLineInfo lineInfo = ((IXmlLineInfo)reader);
    if (lineInfo.HasLineInfo()){

      // Parse the XML and display each node.
      while (reader.Read()){
       switch (reader.NodeType){
         case XmlNodeType.Element:
           Console.Write("{0} {1},{2}  ", reader.Depth, lineInfo.LineNumber, lineInfo.LinePosition);
           Console.WriteLine("<{0}>", reader.Name);
           break;
         case XmlNodeType.Text:
           Console.Write("{0} {1},{2}  ", reader.Depth, lineInfo.LineNumber, lineInfo.LinePosition);
           Console.WriteLine("  {0}", reader.Value);
           break;
         case XmlNodeType.EndElement:
           Console.Write("{0} {1},{2}  ", reader.Depth, lineInfo.LineNumber, lineInfo.LinePosition);
           Console.WriteLine("</{0}>", reader.Name);
           break;
       }       
     }           
    }

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