Namespace:  System.Xml
Assemblies:   System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
  System.Xml.ReaderWriter (in System.Xml.ReaderWriter.dll)

public virtual string XmlLang { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The current xml:lang scope.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

An XmlReader method was called before a previous asynchronous operation finished. In this case, InvalidOperationException is thrown with the message “An asynchronous operation is already in progress.”

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 US English in the root element:

<root xml:lang="en-us"> 
<name>Fred</name> 
</root> 

When the reader is positioned on the name element, you can use this property to find that it is in the scope of a US English xml:lang attribute.

See XmlTextReader.XmlLang for an example of using this property.
