XmlTextReader.MoveToNextAttribute Method

Moves to the next attribute.

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

public override bool MoveToNextAttribute ()
public boolean MoveToNextAttribute ()
public override function MoveToNextAttribute () : boolean

Return Value

true if there is a next attribute; false if there are no more attributes.

NoteNote

In the Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 release, the recommended practice is to create XmlReader instances using the System.Xml.XmlReader.Create method. This allows you to take full advantage of the new features introduced in this release. For more information, see Creating XML Readers.

If the current node is an element node, this method is equivalent to MoveToFirstAttribute. If MoveToNextAttribute returns true, the reader moves to the next attribute; otherwise, the position of the reader does not change.

The following example displays all attributes on the current node.

public void DisplayAttributes(XmlReader reader)
{
    if (reader.HasAttributes)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Attributes of <" + reader.Name + ">");
        while (reader.MoveToNextAttribute())
        {
            Console.WriteLine(" {0}={1}", reader.Name, reader.Value);
        }
    }
}

public void DisplayAttributes(XmlReader reader)
{
    if (reader.get_HasAttributes()) {
        Console.WriteLine("Attributes of <" + reader.get_Name() + ">");
        while (reader.MoveToNextAttribute()) {
            Console.WriteLine(" {0}={1}", reader.get_Name(), 
                reader.get_Value());
        }
    }
} //DisplayAttributes
