XmlNodeReader.LocalName Property

Gets the local name of the current node.

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

public override string LocalName { get; }
/** @property */
public String get_LocalName ()

public override function get LocalName () : String

Property Value

The name of the current node with the prefix removed. For example, LocalName is book for the element <bk:book>. For node types that do not have a name (like Text, Comment, and so on), this property returns String.Empty.

NoteNote

In the Microsoft .NET Framework version 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 Creating XML Readers.

The following example displays the local name of each node, and, if they exist, the prefix and namespace URI.

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

public class Sample 
{
  public static void Main()
  {
    XmlNodeReader reader = null;

    try
    {
       //Create and load the XML document.
       XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
       doc.LoadXml("<book xmlns:bk='urn:samples'> " +
                   "<title>Pride And Prejudice</title>" +
                   "<bk:genre>novel</bk:genre>" +
                   "</book>"); 

       //Load the XmlNodeReader 
       reader = new XmlNodeReader(doc);
  
       //Parse the XML.  If they exist, display the prefix and  
       //namespace URI of each node.
       while (reader.Read()){
         if (reader.IsStartElement()){
           if (reader.Prefix==String.Empty)
              Console.WriteLine("<{0}>", reader.LocalName);
           else{
               Console.Write("<{0}:{1}>", reader.Prefix, reader.LocalName);
               Console.WriteLine(" The namespace URI is " + reader.NamespaceURI);
           }
         }
       }
       
     } 
     finally 
     {
