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

public virtual bool IsStartElement(
	string name
)

Parameters

name
Type: System.String
The string matched against the Name property of the element found.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the resulting node is an element and the Name property matches the specified string. false if a node type other than XmlNodeType.Element was found or if the element Name property does not match the specified string.

This method skips white space, comments, and processing instructions until the reader is positioned on a content node. The method then tests if the current node is an element.

String xmlString =
    @"<book>

      <misc/>
  </book>";

// Create an XmlReader
using (XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create(new StringReader(xmlString)))
{
    // Parse the file and display each price node.
    while (reader.Read())
    {
        if (reader.IsStartElement("price"))
        {
            output.Append(reader.ReadInnerXml());
        }
    }
