LocalName Property

XmlNodeReader.LocalName Property

Gets the local name of the current node.

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

abstract LocalName : string with get 
override LocalName : string with get

Property Value

Type: System.String
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 .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 example displays the local name of each node, and, if they exist, the prefix and namespace URI.
