XmlReader.ReadElementString Method (String)
Checks that the Name property of the element found matches the given string before reading a text-only element.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
If the next content node is not a start tag; if the element Name does not match the given argument; or if the element found does not contain a simple text value.
This is a helper method for reading simple text-only elements. It calls MoveToContent to find the next content node and then parses its value as a simple string.
Using the XML, <name>Arlene Huff</name>, ReadElementString consumes the element and returns the string Arlene Huff.
This method cannot handle any markup (child elements, comments, processing instructions, and so on) inside the name element, but it can concatenate multiple adjacent text and CDATA blocks.
After calling this method the reader will be positioned on the node following the EndElement node or after the empty element tag.
