XmlNamedNodeMap.Item Method

Retrieves the node at the specified index in the XmlNamedNodeMap.

[Visual Basic]
Public Overridable Function Item( _
   ByVal index As Integer _
) As XmlNode
public virtual XmlNode Item(
 int index
public: virtual XmlNode* Item(
 int index
public function Item(
   index : int
) : XmlNode;


The index position of the node to retrieve from the XmlNamedNodeMap. The index is zero-based; therefore, the index of the first node is 0 and the index of the last node is Count-1.

Return Value

The XmlNode at the specified index. If index is less than 0 or greater than or equal to the Count property, a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) is returned.


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example uses the XmlAttributeCollection class (which inherits from XmlNamedNodeMap) to display all the attributes of a book.

Imports System.IO
Imports System.Xml

public class Sample

  public shared sub Main()

    Dim doc as XmlDocument = new XmlDocument()
    doc.LoadXml("<book genre='novel' publicationdate='1997'> " & _
                "  <title>Pride And Prejudice</title>" & _
    Dim attrColl as XmlAttributeCollection = doc.DocumentElement.Attributes

    Console.WriteLine("Display all the attributes for this book...")
    Dim i As Integer
    For i = 0 To attrColl.Count - 1
       Console.WriteLine("{0} = {1}", attrColl.Item(i).Name,attrColl.Item(i).Value)
  end sub
end class

     for (int i=0; i < attrColl.Count; i++)
        Console.WriteLine("{0} = {1}", attrColl.Item(i).Name, attrColl.Item(i).Value);
