XmlNode.SelectNodes Method

 

Selects a list of nodes matching the XPath expression.

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

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodSelectNodes(String)

Selects a list of nodes matching the XPath expression.

System_CAPS_pubmethodSelectNodes(String, XmlNamespaceManager)

Selects a list of nodes matching the XPath expression. Any prefixes found in the XPath expression are resolved using the supplied XmlNamespaceManager.

XPath expressions can include namespaces. Namespace resolution is supported using the XmlNamespaceManager. If the XPath expression includes a prefix, the prefix and namespace URI pair must be added to the XmlNamespaceManager.

System_CAPS_noteNote

If the XPath expression does not include a prefix, it is assumed that the namespace URI is the empty namespace. If your XML includes a default namespace, you must still add a prefix and namespace URI to the XmlNamespaceManager; otherwise, you will not get any nodes selected.
