}

using System;

    //Create the validating reader.
    XmlTextReader txtreader = new XmlTextReader("attrs.xml");
    XmlValidatingReader reader = new XmlValidatingReader(txtreader);

    //Read the genre attribute.

    reader.MoveToFirstAttribute();

public class Sample 

  public shared sub Main()

    Dim txtreader as XmlTextReader = new XmlTextReader("attrs.xml")
    Dim reader as XmlValidatingReader = new XmlValidatingReader(txtreader)

    'Read the genre attribute.
    reader.MoveToContent()
    reader.MoveToFirstAttribute()

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The XmlValidatingReader class is obsolete in .NET Framework 2.0.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