XmlReader.XmlLang Property

When overridden in a derived class, gets the current xml:lang scope.

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

public virtual string XmlLang { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The current xml:lang scope.

This property represents the xml:lang scope within which the current node resides. For example, here is an XML fragment with xml:lang set to US English in the root element:

<root xml:lang="en-us"> 
<name>Fred</name> 
</root> 

When the reader is positioned on the name element, you can use this property to find that it is in the scope of a US English xml:lang attribute.

See XmlLang (in the XmlTextReader class) for an example using this property.
