XmlReader.Create Method (Stream, XmlReaderSettings, String)
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
public static XmlReader Create( Stream input, XmlReaderSettings settings, string baseUri )
- Type: System.IO.Stream
The stream containing the XML data.
The XmlReader scans the first bytes of the stream looking for a byte order mark or other sign of encoding. When encoding is determined, the encoding is used to continue reading the stream, and processing continues parsing the input as a stream of (Unicode) characters.
- Type: System.Xml.XmlReaderSettings
The XmlReaderSettings object used to configure the new XmlReader instance. This value can be null.
- Type: System.String
The base URI for the entity or document being read. This value can be null.
Security Note The base URI is used to resolve the relative URI of the XML document. Do not use a base URI from an untrusted source.
By default an XmlUrlResolver with no credentials is used to access any external resources such as a document type definition (DTD), entities, schemas, and so on. If the external resource is located on a network resource that requires authentication, use the XmlReaderSettings.XmlResolver property to specify an XmlResolver with the necessary credentials.
You can use one of the following methods to control which resources the XmlReader can access:
The created XmlReader object expands entity references and performs XML normalization of new line characters.
