	localName As String, _
	namespaceURI As String _
) As Boolean


Type: System..::..String
The local name of the sibling element you wish to move to.
Type: System..::..String
The namespace URI of the sibling element you wish to move to.

Return Value

Type: System..::..Boolean
true if a matching sibling element is found; otherwise, false. If a matching sibling element is not found, the XmlReader is positioned on the end tag (NodeType is XmlNodeType.EndElement) of the parent element.
