Examples

The following example displays the local name of each node, and, if they exist, the prefix and namespace URI.

#using <System.Xml.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::IO;
using namespace System::Xml;
int main()
{
   XmlNodeReader^ reader = nullptr;
   try
   {
      
      //Create and load the XML document.
      XmlDocument^ doc = gcnew XmlDocument;
      doc->LoadXml( "<book xmlns:bk='urn:samples'> "
      "<title>Pride And Prejudice</title>"
      "<bk:genre>novel</bk:genre>"
      "</book>" );
      
      //Load the XmlNodeReader 
      reader = gcnew XmlNodeReader( doc );
      
      //Parse the XML.  If they exist, display the prefix and  
      //namespace URI of each node.
      while ( reader->Read() )
      {
         if ( reader->IsStartElement() )
         {
            if ( reader->Prefix == String::Empty )
                        Console::WriteLine( "<{0}>", reader->LocalName );

   }
   finally

Remarks

Note

In the .NET Framework 2.0, the recommended practice is to create XmlReader instances using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. This allows you to take full advantage of all the new features introduced in the .NET Framework. For more information, see the Remarks section in the XmlReader reference page.

This property is relevant to Element and Attribute nodes only.
