XmlReader.Create Method (TextReader)
Creates a new XmlReader instance by using the specified text reader.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
- Type: System.IO.TextReader
The text reader from which to read the XML data. A text reader returns a stream of Unicode characters, so the encoding specified in the XML declaration is not used by the XML reader to decode the data stream.
Return ValueType: System.Xml.XmlReader
An object that is used to read the XML data in the stream.
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.
