The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework 2.0. You can create a validating XmlReader instance by using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. For more information, see the Remarks section of the XmlReader reference page.

The following example reads an XML fragment.

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

public class Sample 
{
  public static void Main()
  {

    //Create the validating reader.
    XmlTextReader txtreader = new XmlTextReader("attrs.xml");
    XmlValidatingReader reader = new XmlValidatingReader(txtreader);

    //Read the genre attribute.
    reader.MoveToContent();
    reader.MoveToFirstAttribute();
    string genre=reader.Value;
    Console.WriteLine("The genre value: " + genre);

    //Close the reader.
    reader.Close();

  } 
} // End class
