XmlReader.ReadToNextSibling Method (String)

Advances the XmlReader to the next sibling element with the specified qualified name.

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

public virtual bool ReadToNextSibling(
	string name
)

Parameters

name
Type: System.String
The qualified name of the sibling element you wish to move to.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if a matching sibling element is found; otherwise false. If a matching sibling element is not found, the XmlReader is positioned on the end tag (NodeType is XmlNodeType.EndElement) of the parent element.

NoteNote

Do not call ReadToNextSibling when the XmlReader is an initial state (ReadState is Initial). You can call Read to advance the XmlReader and then call the ReadToNextSibling method.

The following example reads the ISBN attribute on each book node.


using (XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create("books.xml")) {
    reader.ReadToFollowing("book");
    do {
       Console.WriteLine("ISBN: {0}", reader.GetAttribute("ISBN")); 
    } while (reader.ReadToNextSibling("book"));
}
