XmlReader.ReadString XmlReader.ReadString XmlReader.ReadString XmlReader.ReadString Method

Definition

When overridden in a derived class, reads the contents of an element or text node as a string. However, we recommend that you use the ReadElementContentAsString method instead, because it provides a more straightforward way to handle this operation.

public:
 virtual System::String ^ ReadString();
public virtual string ReadString ();
abstract member ReadString : unit -> string
override this.ReadString : unit -> string
Public Overridable Function ReadString () As String

Returns

The contents of the element or an empty string.

Exceptions

An error occurred while parsing the XML.

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."

Remarks

We recommend that you use the ReadElementContentAsString method to read the contents of an element or text node as a string.
