[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Skips the children of the current node.

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

public virtual void Skip()

In the following XML input if the reader is positioned on the <a> node or any of its attributes, calling Skip positions the reader to the <b> node.

If the reader is positioned on a leaf node already (such as the <x> node or the text node abc), calling Skip is the same as calling Read.

 <a name="bob" age="123">
  <x/>abc<y/>
 </a>
 <b>
 ...
 </b>

This method checks for well-formed XML.

If the reader is an XmlValidatingReader, this method also validates the skipped content.
