Moves the XPathNavigator to the next namespace node.

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

public bool MoveToNextNamespace()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

Returns true if the XPathNavigator is successful moving to the next namespace node; otherwise, false. If false, the position of the XPathNavigator is unchanged.

The XPathNavigator class returns namespace nodes in reverse document order. Therefore, MoveToNextNamespace essentially moves to the namespace node above the one in the current scope.

If the XPathNavigator is not currently positioned on a namespace node, this method returns false and the position of the XPathNavigator does not change.

When the XPathNavigator is positioned on a namespace node, the methods MoveToNext, MoveToPrevious, and MoveToFirst are not applicable. These methods always return false and do not change the position of the XPathNavigator.

After the XPathNavigator is positioned on an namespace node, call MoveToParent to move back to the element node.

For a definition of namespace nodes, see section 5.4 of the W3C XML Path Language (XPath) recommendation located at http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath#data-model.
