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

virtual XPathNavigator^ CreateNavigator(
	XmlNode^ node
) override


Type: System.Xml::XmlNode^

The XmlNode you want the navigator initially positioned on.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.XPath::XPathNavigator^

An XPathNavigator used to navigate the document.

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.
