XObject.IXmlLineInfo.HasLineInfo XObject.IXmlLineInfo.HasLineInfo XObject.IXmlLineInfo.HasLineInfo Method

Definition

Gets a value indicating whether or not this XObject has line information.

 virtual bool System.Xml.IXmlLineInfo.HasLineInfo() = System::Xml::IXmlLineInfo::HasLineInfo;
bool IXmlLineInfo.HasLineInfo ();
Function HasLineInfo () As Boolean Implements IXmlLineInfo.HasLineInfo

Returns

true if the XObject has line information; otherwise, false.

Examples

This example loads a small XML tree from a file, setting the options to set base URI and retain line information. It then adds another element that does not have line information. It then prints the line information for each element in the tree.

string markup = @"<Root>  
    <Child1 />  
    <Child2 />  
    <Child4 />  
</Root>";  
  
File.WriteAllText("Test.xml", markup);  
  
XElement po = XElement.Load("Test.xml",  
    LoadOptions.SetBaseUri | LoadOptions.SetLineInfo);  
  
// add a node to the tree.  
// the newly added node will not have line information.  
po.Element("Child2").AddAfterSelf(new XElement("Child3"));  
  
string[] splitUri = po.BaseUri.Split('/');  
Console.WriteLine("BaseUri: {0}", splitUri[splitUri.Length - 1]);  
Console.WriteLine();  
Console.WriteLine("{0}{1}{2}",  
    "Element Name".PadRight(20),  
    "Line".PadRight(5),  
    "Position");  
Console.WriteLine("{0}{1}{2}",  
    "------------".PadRight(20),  
    "----".PadRight(5),  
    "--------");  
foreach (XElement e in po.DescendantsAndSelf())  
    Console.WriteLine("{0}{1}{2}",  
        ("".PadRight(e.Ancestors().Count() * 2) + e.Name).PadRight(20),  
        ((IXmlLineInfo)e).HasLineInfo() ?  
            ((IXmlLineInfo)e).LineNumber.ToString().PadRight(5) :  
            "",  
        ((IXmlLineInfo)e).HasLineInfo() ?  
            ((IXmlLineInfo)e).LinePosition.ToString() :  
            "No Line Information");  
Dim markup As String = _  
    "<Root>" & Environment.NewLine & _  
    "    <Child1 />" & Environment.NewLine & _  
    "    <Child2 />" & Environment.NewLine & _  
    "    <Child4 />" & Environment.NewLine & _  
    "</Root>"  
  
File.WriteAllText("Test.xml", markup)  
  
Dim po As XElement = XElement.Load("Test.xml", LoadOptions.SetBaseUri Or LoadOptions.SetLineInfo)  
  
' add a node to the tree.  
' the newly added node will not have line information.  
po.Element("Child2").AddAfterSelf(New XElement("Child3"))  
  
Dim splitUri() As String = po.BaseUri.Split("/"c)  
Console.WriteLine("BaseUri: {0}", splitUri(splitUri.Length - 1))  
Console.WriteLine()  
Console.WriteLine("{0}{1}{2}", _  
    "Element Name".PadRight(20), _  
    "Line".PadRight(5), _  
    "Position")  
Console.WriteLine("{0}{1}{2}", _  
    "------------".PadRight(20), _  
    "----".PadRight(5), _  
    "--------")  
For Each e As XElement In po.DescendantsAndSelf()  
    Console.WriteLine("{0}{1}{2}", _  
        ("".PadRight(e.Ancestors().Count() * 2) & e.Name.ToString).PadRight(20), _  
        IIf(DirectCast(e, IXmlLineInfo).HasLineInfo(), _  
            DirectCast(e, IXmlLineInfo).LineNumber.ToString().PadRight(5), _  
            ""), _  
        IIf(DirectCast(e, IXmlLineInfo).HasLineInfo(), _  
            DirectCast(e, IXmlLineInfo).LinePosition.ToString(), _  
            "No Line Information"))  
Next  

This example produces the following output:

BaseUri: Test.xml  
  
Element Name        Line Position  
------------        ---- --------  
Root                1    2  
  Child1            2    6  
  Child2            3    6  
  Child3            No Line Information  
  Child4            4    6  

Remarks

You can call this method to determine whether the XObject contains valid line information.

This method is an explicit interface member implementation of a method in the IXmlLineInfo interface, so in order to call this method, it is necessary to cast to IXmlLineInfo.
