XmlValidatingReader.XmlLang Property

Gets the current xml:lang scope.

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

public override string XmlLang { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The current xml:lang scope.

NoteNote:

The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework version 2.0.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 property represents the xml:lang scope within which the current node resides. For example, here is an XML fragment with xml:lang set to U.S. 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 U.S. English xml:lang attribute.
