This method concatenates text, white space, significant white space, and CDATA sections, and skips any comments or processing instructions. Entity references are automatically resolved.
This method can be used convert typed values to a string, or to read the text content while skipping comments and processing instructions.
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.|
||An empty string.||The reader remains in the current position.|
||An InvalidOperationException is thrown.||Undefined, although typically the reader remains in the current position.|
