Definition

Gets the number of attributes on the current node.

public:
 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. This number includes default attributes.

Remarks

Note

The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework 2.0. You can create a validating XmlReader instance by using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. For more information, see the Remarks section of the XmlReader reference page.

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