XmlNamedNodeMap.Item Method

Retrieves the node at the specified index in the XmlNamedNodeMap.

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

public virtual XmlNode Item(
	int index
)

Parameters

index
Type: System.Int32

The index position of the node to retrieve from the XmlNamedNodeMap. The index is zero-based; therefore, the index of the first node is 0 and the index of the last node is Count -1.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNode
The XmlNode at the specified index. If index is less than 0 or greater than or equal to the Count property, null is returned.

The following example uses the XmlAttributeCollection class (which inherits from XmlNamedNodeMap) to display all the attributes of a book.

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

public class Sample
{
  public static void Main()
  {
     XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
     doc.LoadXml("<book genre='novel' publicationdate='1997'> " +
                 "  <title>Pride And Prejudice</title>" +
                 "</book>");      

     XmlAttributeCollection attrColl = doc.DocumentElement.Attributes;

     Console.WriteLine("Display all the attributes for this book...");
     for (int i=0; i < attrColl.Count; i++)
     {
        Console.WriteLine("{0} = {1}", attrColl.Item(i).Name, attrColl.Item(i).Value);
     }         

  }
}
