XmlTextReader.CanResolveEntity Property


Gets a value indicating whether this reader can parse and resolve entities.

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

public override bool CanResolveEntity { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the reader can parse and resolve entities; otherwise, false. The XmlTextReader class always returns true.


Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, we recommend that you create XmlReader instances by using the XmlReader.Create method to take advantage of new functionality.

This is a change in the .NET Framework 2.0 release. In previous versions, the XmlTextReader class could not resolve entities and CanResolveEntity always returned false.
