Used by XPathNavigator implementations which provide a "virtualized" XML view over a store, to provide access to underlying objects.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
The property can be used by XPathNavigator implementations which provide a "virtualized" XML view over a store, to provide access to underlying objects. For example, if an XPathNavigator object is used to provide a virtual XML view over a Common Language Runtime (CLR) object graph, you may wish to perform XPath queries using the Select method and then access the CLR objects underlying the selected nodes. The property would expose these underlying objects.
In many cases, this value will be null, and the object returned by the property will always be implementation specific.
The property should preserve object identity and should only be used to return objects that have a one-to-one correspondence to their respective overlaid items. A user should always get the same object on successive visits to the same node using the same XPathNavigator object or a cloned one.
