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

public static XmlReader Create (
	string inputUri
)
public static XmlReader Create (
	String inputUri
)
public static function Create (
	inputUri : String
) : XmlReader
Not applicable.

Parameters

inputUri

The URI for the file containing the XML data. The XmlUrlResolver class is used to convert the path to a canonical data representation.

Return Value

An XmlReader object to read the XML data.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

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

SecurityException

The XmlReader does not have sufficient permissions to access the location of the XML data.

FileNotFoundException

The file identified by the URI does not exist.

UriFormatException

The URI format is not correct.

An XmlReaderSettings object with default settings is used to create the reader. If you wish to specify the features to support on the created reader, use the overload that takes an XmlReaderSettings object as one of its arguments, and pass in an XmlReaderSettings object with the correct settings.

A default 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, specify an XmlResolver with the necessary credentials using the XmlReaderSettings.XmlResolver property.

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

The following example creates an XmlReader object that reads XML data file specified by the URI.

// Create the XmlReader object.
XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create("books.xml");
