   //Create an attribute collection.
   XmlAttributeCollection^ attrColl = doc->DocumentElement->Attributes;
   Console::WriteLine( "Display information on each of the attributes... \r\n" );
   System::Collections::IEnumerator^ myEnum = attrColl->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      XmlAttribute^ attr = safe_cast<XmlAttribute^>(myEnum->Current);
      Console::Write( "{0}:{1} = {2}", attr->Prefix, attr->LocalName, attr->Value );
      Console::WriteLine( "\t namespaceURI={0}", attr->NamespaceURI );
   }
}

    foreach (XmlAttribute attr in attrColl){
       Console.Write("{0}:{1} = {2}", attr.Prefix, attr.LocalName, attr.Value);

public class Sample

  public shared sub Main()

    Dim doc as XmlDocument = new XmlDocument()
    doc.LoadXml("<book xmlns:bk='urn:samples' bk:genre='novel'>" & _
                "<title>Pride And Prejudice</title>" & _
                "</book>") 

    'Create an attribute collection.
    Dim attrColl as XmlAttributeCollection = doc.DocumentElement.Attributes

    Console.WriteLine("Display information on each of the attributes... ")
    Dim attr as XmlAttribute
    for each attr in attrColl
       Console.Write("{0}:{1} = {2}", attr.Prefix, attr.LocalName, attr.Value)
       Console.WriteLine("   namespaceURI=" + attr.NamespaceURI)
    next

  end sub
end class

Remarks

If the node does not have a prefix, LocalName is the same as Name.
