System_CAPS_noteNote

In the .NET Framework 2.0, the recommended practice is to create XmlReader instances using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. This allows you to take full advantage of all the new features introduced in the .NET Framework. For more information, see the Remarks section in the XmlReader reference page.

The following table lists node types that have a value to return.

Node Type

Value

Attribute

The value of the attribute.

CDATA

The content of the CDATA section.

Comment

The content of the comment.

DocumentType

The internal subset.

ProcessingInstruction

The entire content, excluding the target.

SignificantWhitespace

The white space between markup in a mixed content model.

Text

The content of the text node.

Whitespace

The white space between markup.

XmlDeclaration

The content of the declaration.

The following example displays the value for every node which can have a value.

#using <System.Xml.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::IO;
using namespace System::Xml;
int main()
{
   XmlNodeReader^ reader = nullptr;
   try
   {

      // Create and load an XmlDocument.
      XmlDocument^ doc = gcnew XmlDocument;
      doc->LoadXml( "<?xml version='1.0' ?>"
      "<!DOCTYPE book [<!ENTITY h 'hardcover'>]>"
      "<book>"
      "<title>Pride And Prejudice</title>"
      "<misc>&h;</misc>"
      "</book>" );
      reader = gcnew XmlNodeReader( doc );

      // Parse the file and display each node.
      while ( reader->Read() )
      {
         if ( reader->HasValue )
                  Console::WriteLine( "({0})  {1}={2}", reader->NodeType, reader->Name, reader->Value );
         else
                  Console::WriteLine( "({0}) {1}", reader->NodeType, reader->Name );
      }
   }
   finally
   {
      if ( reader != nullptr )
            reader->Close();
   }

}
