XmlReader.ReadElementContentAsBoolean Method

Reads the current element and returns the contents as a Boolean object.

Namespace:  System.Xml
Assemblies:   System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
  System.Xml.ReaderWriter (in System.Xml.ReaderWriter.dll)

public virtual bool ReadElementContentAsBoolean()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
The element content as a Boolean object.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

The XmlReader is not positioned on an element.

XmlException

The current element contains child elements.

-or-

The element content cannot be converted to a Boolean object.

ArgumentNullException

The method is called with null arguments.

InvalidOperationException

An XmlReader method was called before a previous asynchronous operation finished. In this case, InvalidOperationException is thrown with the message “An asynchronous operation is already in progress.”

This method reads the start tag, the contents of the element, and moves the reader past the end element tag. It expands entities and ignores processing instructions and comments. The element can only contain simple content. That is, it cannot have child elements.

If the element content is typed xsd:boolean, the reader returns an unboxed Boolean object. If the content is not typed xsd:boolean, the reader attempts to convert it to a Boolean object according to the rules defined by the W3C XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes recommendation.

For more information, see the Remarks section of the XmlReader reference page.
