The following example displays information on the entities 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 entities...");     
     XmlNamedNodeMap nMap = doc.DocumentType.Entities;
     DisplayEntities(nMap);
  }

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

The example uses the file, doment.xml, as input.
