Property Value

The current xml:lang scope.


The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework 2.0. You can create a validating XmlReader instance by using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. For more information, see the Remarks section of the XmlReader reference page.

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"> 

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.
