XmlReader.MoveToNextAttribute Method

When overridden in a derived class, moves to the next attribute.

[Visual Basic]
Public MustOverride Function MoveToNextAttribute() As Boolean
public abstract bool MoveToNextAttribute();
public: virtual bool MoveToNextAttribute() = 0;
public abstract function MoveToNextAttribute() : Boolean;

Return Value

true if there is a next attribute; false if there are no more attributes.


If the current node is an element node, this method is equivalent to MoveToFirstAttribute. If MoveToNextAttribute returns true, the reader moves to the next attribute; otherwise, the position of the reader does not change.


See MoveToNextAttribute (in the XmlNodeReader class) for an example using this method.
