Gets or sets a value indicating whether to ignore insignificant white space.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
White space that is not considered to be significant includes spaces, tabs, and blank lines used to set apart the markup for greater readability. An example of this is white space in element content.
This property setting does not affect white space between markup in a mixed content mode, or white space that occurs within the scope of an xml:space='preserve' attribute.
The following creates a settings object that can be used to construct a reader that strips processing instructions, comments, and insignificant white space.
// Set the reader settings. XmlReaderSettings settings = new XmlReaderSettings(); settings.IgnoreComments = true; settings.IgnoreProcessingInstructions = true; settings.IgnoreWhitespace = true;
