XmlTextReader.AttributeCount Property

Gets the number of attributes on the current node.

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

public override int AttributeCount { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The number of attributes on the current node.

NoteNote

Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, we recommend that you create XmlReader instances by using the XmlReader.Create method to take advantage of new functionality.

This property is relevant to Element, DocumentType and XmlDeclaration nodes only. (Other node types do not have attributes.)

The following example displays all attributes on the current node.

public void DisplayAttributes(XmlReader reader)
{
  if (reader.HasAttributes)
  {
    Console.WriteLine("Attributes of <" + reader.Name + ">");
    for (int i = 0; i < reader.AttributeCount; i++)
    {
      reader.MoveToAttribute(i);
      Console.Write(" {0}={1}", reader.Name, reader.Value);
    }
    reader.MoveToElement(); //Moves the reader back to the element node.
  }
}
