XmlTextReader.ResolveEntity Method

Resolves the entity reference for EntityReference nodes.

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

public override void ResolveEntity ()
public void ResolveEntity ()
public override function ResolveEntity ()

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 reader is positioned on an EntityReference node (XmlNodeType.EntityReference), if Read is called after calling this method, the entity replacement text is parsed. When the entity replacement text is finished, an EndEntity node is returned to close the entity reference scope.

NoteNote

After calling this method, if the entity is part of an attribute value, you must call ReadAttributeValue to step into the entity.
