XmlReader.LocalName XmlReader.LocalName XmlReader.LocalName XmlReader.LocalName Property

Definition

When overridden in a derived class, gets the local name of the current node.

public:
 abstract property System::String ^ LocalName { System::String ^ get(); };
public abstract string LocalName { get; }
member this.LocalName : string
Public MustOverride ReadOnly Property LocalName As String

Property Value

The name of the current node with the prefix removed. For example, LocalName is book for the element <bk:book>.

For node types that do not have a name (like Text, Comment, and so on), this property returns String.Empty.

Exceptions

An XmlReader method was called before a previous asynchronous operation finished. In this case, InvalidOperationException is thrown with the message "An asynchronous operation is already in progress."

Examples

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

XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create("book2.xml");

// Parse the file.  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);
    else {
      Console.Write("<{0}:{1}>", reader.Prefix, reader.LocalName);
      Console.WriteLine(" The namespace URI is " + reader.NamespaceURI);
    }
  }
}       
reader.Close();
Dim reader As XmlReader = XmlReader.Create("book2.xml")
        
' Parse the file.  If they exist, display the prefix and 
' namespace URI of each node.
While reader.Read()
  If reader.IsStartElement() Then
    If reader.Prefix = String.Empty Then
      Console.WriteLine("<{0}>", reader.LocalName)
    Else
      Console.Write("<{0}:{1}>", reader.Prefix, reader.LocalName)
      Console.WriteLine(" The namespace URI is " + reader.NamespaceURI)
    End If
  End If
End While
reader.Close()

The example uses the file, book2.xml, as input.

<book xmlns:bk='urn:samples'>
  <title>Pride And Prejudice</title>
  <bk:genre>novel</bk:genre>
</book>
