XmlTextReader.XmlLang Property

Gets the current xml:lang scope.

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

public override string XmlLang { get; }
/** @property */
public String get_XmlLang ()

public override function get XmlLang () : String

Not applicable.

Property Value

The current xml:lang scope.

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.

This property represents the xml:lang scope within which the current node resides. For example, here is an XML fragment with xml:lang set to US English in the root element:

<root xml:lang="en-us">

<name>Fred</name>

</root>

When the reader is positioned on the name element, you can use this property to find that it is in the scope of a US English xml:lang attribute.

The following example displays the xml:lang value for each of the nodes.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample{

  public static void Main(){

    //Create the XML fragment to be parsed.
    string xmlFrag  = "<book xml:lang='en-US'> " +
                           "  <title xml:lang='en-GB'>Colour Analysis</title>" +
                           "  <title>Color Analysis</title>" +
                           "</book>"; 

    //Create the XmlNamespaceManager.
    NameTable nt = new NameTable();
    XmlNamespaceManager nsmgr = new XmlNamespaceManager(nt);

    //Create the XmlParserContext.
    XmlParserContext context = new XmlParserContext(null, nsmgr, null, XmlSpace.None);

    //Create the reader.
    XmlTextReader reader = new XmlTextReader(xmlFrag, XmlNodeType.Element, context);
    reader.WhitespaceHandling = WhitespaceHandling.None;

    //Parse the XML and display each of the nodes, including the xml:lang setting.
    while (reader.Read()){
       switch (reader.NodeType){
