Notations Property

XmlDocumentType.Notations Property

Gets the collection of XmlNotation nodes present in the document type declaration.

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

public XmlNamedNodeMap Notations { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNamedNodeMap
An XmlNamedNodeMap containing the XmlNotation nodes. The returned XmlNamedNodeMap is read-only.

The order in which the notations are returned is not based on the order in which these items may appear in the document. The order is also not guaranteed to be the same between similar documents, or between different implementations or versions of the class.

The following example displays information about the notations declared in the XML document.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample
{
  private const String filename = "doment.xml";

  public static void Main()
  {      
    XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
    doc.Load(filename);

    Console.WriteLine("Display information on all notations...");     
    XmlNamedNodeMap nMap = doc.DocumentType.Notations;
    DisplayNotations(nMap);      
  }

  public static void DisplayNotations(XmlNamedNodeMap nMap)
  {   
     for (int i=0; i < nMap.Count; i++)
     {
        XmlNotation note = (XmlNotation) nMap.Item(i);
        Console.Write("{0} ", note.NodeType);
        Console.Write("{0} ", note.Name);
        Console.Write("{0} ", note.PublicId);
        Console.Write("{0} ", note.SystemId);
        Console.WriteLine();
    }
  }            
}

The example uses the file doment.xml as input.
