XmlTextReader.Close Method

Changes the ReadState to Closed.

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

public override void Close ()
public void Close ()
public override function Close ()

NoteNote

In the Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 release, the recommended practice is to create XmlReader instances using the System.Xml.XmlReader.Create method. This allows you to take full advantage of the new features introduced in this release. For more information, see Creating XML Readers.

This method also releases any resources held while reading. If this reader was constructed using a stream, this method also calls Close on the underlying stream.

If Close has already been called, no action is performed.
