Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework version 2.0. You can create a validating XmlReader instance by using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. For more information, see Validating XML Data with XmlReader.
This method also releases any resources held while reading. If this reader was constructed by using an XmlTextReader, this method also calls Close on the underlying reader. If this reader was constructed by using a stream, this method also calls Close on the underlying stream.
If Close has already been called, no action is performed.
