NodeType Property

XmlWhitespace.NodeType Property

 

Gets the type of the node.

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

public override XmlNodeType NodeType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNodeType

For XmlWhitespace nodes, the value is Whitespace.

The following example adds a white space node to the document.

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

public class Sample {
  private XmlNode currNode;
  private const String filename="space.xml";
  XmlTextReader reader=null;

  public static void Main() {

    Sample test = new Sample();
  }
  public Sample() {

      XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
      doc.LoadXml("<author>" +
                  "<first-name>Eva</first-name>"+
                  "<last-name>Corets</last-name>" + 
                  "</author>"); 


      Console.WriteLine("InnerText before...");
      Console.WriteLine(doc.DocumentElement.InnerText);

      // Add white space.     
      currNode=doc.DocumentElement;
      XmlWhitespace ws = doc.CreateWhitespace("\r\n");
      currNode.InsertAfter(ws, currNode.FirstChild);

      Console.WriteLine();
      Console.WriteLine("InnerText after...");
      Console.WriteLine(doc.DocumentElement.InnerText);

      // Save and then display the file.
      doc.Save(filename);
      Console.WriteLine();
      Console.WriteLine("Reading file...");
      ReadFile(filename);

  }

  // Parse the file and display each node.
  public void ReadFile(String filename) {
    try {
      reader = new XmlTextReader(filename);
      String sNodeType = null;
      while (reader.Read()) { 
       sNodeType = NodeTypeToString(reader.NodeType); 
       // Print the node type, name, and value.
       Console.WriteLine("{0}<{1}> {2}", sNodeType, reader.Name, reader.Value);
      }
    }

    finally 
    {
       if (reader != null)
         reader.Close();
    }
   }

   public static String NodeTypeToString(XmlNodeType nodetype) {
      String sNodeType = null;
      switch (nodetype) {
        case XmlNodeType.None:
          sNodeType = "None";
          break;

          break;
        case XmlNodeType.Comment:

          break;
        case XmlNodeType.Document:
          sNodeType = "Document";
          break;
        case XmlNodeType.Whitespace:
          sNodeType = "Whitespace";
          break;
        case XmlNodeType.SignificantWhitespace:
          sNodeType = "SignificantWhitespace";
          break;
        case XmlNodeType.EndElement:
          sNodeType = "EndElement";
