Reader. Read Content AsObject Method
Reads the text content at the current position as an Object.
public: virtual System::Object ^ ReadContentAsObject();
public virtual object ReadContentAsObject ();
abstract member ReadContentAsObject : unit -> obj override this.ReadContentAsObject : unit -> obj
Public Overridable Function ReadContentAsObject () As Object
The text content as the most appropriate common language runtime (CLR) object.
The attempted cast is not valid.
The string format is not valid.
An XmlReader method was called before a previous asynchronous operation finished. In this case, InvalidOperationException is thrown with the message "An asynchronous operation is already in progress."
This method concatenates text, white space, significant white space, and CDATA sections, and skips any comments or processing instructions. Entity references are automatically resolved.
If the content is typed, the reader returns a boxed CLR of the most appropriate type, specified by the ValueType property. If the content is a list type, the reader returns an array of boxed objects of the appropriate type.
If a validation error occurs while parsing the content and the reader is an XmlReader object created by the Create method, the reader returns the content as a string. In other words when a validation error or warning occurs, the content is considered to be untyped.
If the content is not typed, the reader returns the content as a string.
The following table describes how this method treats each node type.
|XmlNodeType||Return value||Reader behavior|
||Concatenated content of text, CDATA, white space and significant white space nodes converted to the requested type.||Moves to the next start element or end element tag. Entity references are automatically expanded.|
||Same as calling
||The reader remains in the current position|
||Ignores the processing instruction (PI) or comment and reads the concatenated text content that follows the PI or comment.||Moves to the next start element or end element tag. Entity references are automatically expanded.|
||The value of the element if the reader is a schema validating reader (ValidationType is set to Schema); otherwise an empty string.||The reader remains in the current position.|
||An InvalidOperationException is thrown.||Undefined, although typically the reader remains in the current position.|
