The XsltMessageEncountered event occurs during XSLT processing when an xsl:message is specified in the style sheet.

NoteNote

If the terminate attribute is set to "yes", the XSLT processor stops executing the style sheet stops after the message is processed.

The following example uses the XsltMessageEncounteredEventArgs to display xsl:message content to the console. The sample writes the following message to the console: Message received: Author name is not in the correct format <author><name>Plato</name></author>.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;
using System.Xml.Xsl;
using System.Xml.XPath;

public class Sample {

  public static void Main() {

    // Create the XslCompiledTransform object and load the style sheet.
    XslCompiledTransform xslt = new XslCompiledTransform();
    xslt.Load("message.xsl");

    XsltArgumentList argList = new XsltArgumentList();
    argList.XsltMessageEncountered += new XsltMessageEncounteredEventHandler(MessageCallBack);
	
    // Load the file to transform.
    XPathDocument doc = new XPathDocument("books.xml");

    // Transform the file.
    xslt.Transform(doc, argList, XmlWriter.Create("output.xml"));

  }

  private static void MessageCallBack(object sender, XsltMessageEncounteredEventArgs e) {
    Console.WriteLine("Message received: {0}", e.Message);
  }

}

The example uses the following files as input:
