XmlReader.Create Method (TextReader)

Creates a new XmlReader instance with the specified TextReader.

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

public static XmlReader Create (
	TextReader input
)
public static XmlReader Create (
	TextReader input
)
public static function Create (
	input : TextReader
) : XmlReader
Not applicable.

Parameters

input

The TextReader from which to read the XML data. Because a TextReader returns a stream of Unicode characters, the encoding specified in the XML declaration is not used by the XmlReader to decode the data stream.

Return Value

An XmlReader object to read the XML data.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

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

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 uses the StringReader class to read an XML string.

string xmlData ="<item productID='124390'>" +
                        "<price>5.95</price>" +
                        "</item>";

// Create the XmlReader object.
XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create(new StringReader(xmlData));
