XmlTextReader.AttributeCount XmlTextReader.AttributeCount XmlTextReader.AttributeCount XmlTextReader.AttributeCount Property


Gets the number of attributes on the current node.

 virtual property int AttributeCount { int get(); };
public override int AttributeCount { get; }
member this.AttributeCount : int
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property AttributeCount As Integer

Property Value

The number of attributes on the current node.


The following example displays all attributes on the current node.

   void DisplayAttributes( XmlReader^ reader )
      if ( reader->HasAttributes )
         Console::WriteLine( "Attributes of <{0}>", reader->Name );
         for ( int i = 0; i < reader->AttributeCount; i++ )
            reader->MoveToAttribute( i );
            Console::Write( " {0}={1}", reader->Name, reader->Value );

         reader->MoveToElement(); //Moves the reader back to the element node.
public void DisplayAttributes(XmlReader reader)
  if (reader.HasAttributes)
    Console.WriteLine("Attributes of <" + reader.Name + ">");
    for (int i = 0; i < reader.AttributeCount; i++)
      Console.Write(" {0}={1}", reader.Name, reader.Value);
    reader.MoveToElement(); //Moves the reader back to the element node.
Public Sub DisplayAttributes(reader As XmlReader)
    If reader.HasAttributes Then
        Console.WriteLine("Attributes of <" & reader.Name & ">")
        Dim i As Integer
        For i = 0 To reader.AttributeCount - 1
            Console.Write(" {0}={1}", reader.Name, reader.Value)
        Next i
        reader.MoveToElement() 'Moves the reader back to the element node.
    End If
End Sub 'DisplayAttributes



Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, we recommend that you create XmlReader instances by using the XmlReader.Create method to take advantage of new functionality.

This property is relevant to Element, DocumentType and XmlDeclaration nodes only. (Other node types do not have attributes.)
