XmlResolver.GetEntity Method

When overridden in a derived class, maps a URI to an object containing the actual resource.

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

public abstract Object GetEntity(
	Uri absoluteUri,
	string role,
	Type ofObjectToReturn
)

Parameters

absoluteUri
Type: System.Uri
The URI returned from ResolveUri.
role
Type: System.String
The current version does not use this parameter when resolving URIs. This is provided for future extensibility purposes. For example, this can be mapped to the xlink:role and used as an implementation specific argument in other scenarios.
ofObjectToReturn
Type: System.Type
The type of object to return. The current version only returns Stream objects.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
A Stream object or null if a type other than stream is specified.

ExceptionCondition
XmlException

ofObjectToReturn is not a Stream type.

ArgumentNullException

absoluteUri is null.

Exception

There is a runtime error (for example, an interrupted server connection).

This method is used when the caller wants to map a given URI into the object containing the actual resource that the URI represents. The type of object returned is negotiable; however, the implementation must always support Stream.

Security noteSecurity Note:

Your application can mitigate memory Denial of Service threats to the GetEntity method by implementing a wrapping implemented IStream that limits the number of bytes read. This helps to guard against situations where malicious code attempts to pass an infinite stream of bytes to the GetEntity method.
