XmlTextReader.GetRemainder XmlTextReader.GetRemainder XmlTextReader.GetRemainder XmlTextReader.GetRemainder Method

Definition

Gets the remainder of the buffered XML.

public:
 System::IO::TextReader ^ GetRemainder();
public System.IO.TextReader GetRemainder ();
member this.GetRemainder : unit -> System.IO.TextReader
Public Function GetRemainder () As TextReader

Returns

A TextReader containing the remainder of the buffered XML.

Examples

The following example reads the first part of an XML document and then uses GetRemainder to complete reading the document using a second reader.

   {
      
      // Display the elements and stop reading on the book endelement tag

Remarks

Note

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.

Because XmlTextReader does a buffered Read, it must be able to return the remainder of the unused buffer so that no data is lost. This allows protocols (such as multi-part MIME) to package XML in the same stream as other things.

After calling this method, EOF is set to true.
