XmlValidatingReader.MoveToElement XmlValidatingReader.MoveToElement XmlValidatingReader.MoveToElement XmlValidatingReader.MoveToElement Method

Definition

Moves to the element that contains the current attribute node.

public:
 override bool MoveToElement();
public override bool MoveToElement ();
override this.MoveToElement : unit -> bool
Public Overrides Function MoveToElement () As Boolean

Returns

true if the reader is positioned on an attribute (the reader moves to the element that owns the attribute); false if the reader is not positioned on an attribute (the position of the reader does not change).

Examples

The following example reads all the elements on the root node.

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The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework 2.0.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

Use this method to return to an element after navigating through its attributes. This method moves the reader to one of the following node types: Element, DocumentType, or XmlDeclaration.
