NoteNote

Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, we recommend that you create XmlReader instances by using the XmlReader.Create method to take advantage of new functionality.

The following example displays all attributes on the current node.

public void DisplayAttributes(XmlReader reader)
{
  if (reader.HasAttributes)
  {
    Console.WriteLine("Attributes of <" + reader.Name + ">");
    for (int i = 0; i < reader.AttributeCount; i++)
    {
      reader.MoveToAttribute(i);
      Console.Write(" {0}={1}", reader.Name, reader.Value);
    }
    reader.MoveToElement(); //Moves the reader back to the element node.
  }
}
