Property Value

Boolean

true if the current node has any child nodes; otherwise, false.

Remarks

If the XPathNavigator is positioned on a node that cannot have child nodes, the HasChildren property always returns false.

The following table lists the child node XPathNodeType nodes allowed for each XPathNodeType node.

XPathNodeType Node Child XPathNodeType Nodes
Root Element, Comment, or ProcessingInstruction nodes. Note: DocumentFragment is equivalent to Root when using the XmlDocument class and can have the same children as an element.
Element Element, Text, Comment, ProcessingInstruction, Whitespace or SignificantWhitespace nodes.
All other XPathNodeType nodes Cannot have child nodes.
