XmlDataDocument.CreateNavigator Method (XmlNode)

Creates a new XPathNavigator object for navigating this document. The XPathNavigator is positioned on the node specified in the node parameter.

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

protected override XPathNavigator CreateNavigator(
	XmlNode node
)

Parameters

node
Type: System.Xml.XmlNode
The XmlNode you want the navigator initially positioned on.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.XPath.XPathNavigator
An XPathNavigator.

The XPathNavigator provides read-only, random access to data. Because it is optimized for XSLT transformations, it provides performance benefits when used as an input mechanism to the Transform method.

To see an XSLT transformation using XmlDataDocument and an XPathNavigator, see the XslTransform.Transform method.
