XmlValidatingReader.LocalName XmlValidatingReader.LocalName XmlValidatingReader.LocalName XmlValidatingReader.LocalName Property

Definition

Gets the local name of the current node.

public:
 virtual property System::String ^ LocalName { System::String ^ get(); };
public override string LocalName { get; }
member this.LocalName : string
Public Overrides 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.

Examples

The following example reads an XML fragment.

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The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework 2.0.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.
