XmlReader.ReadToNextSibling Method (String)

Advances the XmlReader to the next sibling element with the specified qualified name.

Namespace:  System.Xml
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)

Syntax

'Declaration
Public Overridable Function ReadToNextSibling ( _
    name As String _
) As Boolean
public virtual bool ReadToNextSibling(
    string name
)

Parameters

  • name
    Type: System.String
    The qualified name of the sibling element you wish to move to.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if a matching sibling element is found; otherwise false. If a matching sibling element is not found, the XmlReader is positioned on the end tag (NodeType is XmlNodeType.EndElement) of the parent element.

Remarks

NoteNote:

Do not call ReadToNextSibling when the XmlReader is an initial state (ReadState is Initial). You can call Read to advance the XmlReader and then call the ReadToNextSibling method.

Examples

Dim output As New StringBuilder()

Dim xmlString As String = _
    "<root>" & _
      "<item sale-item='true' productID='123456' colors='blue green black'>" & _
            "<price>9.95</price>" & _
        "</item>" & _
        "<item sale-item='false' productID='124390'>" & _
            "<price>5.95</price>" & _
        "</item>" & _
        "<item sale-item='true' productID='53298'>" & _
            "<price>12.95</price>" & _
        "</item>" & _
    "</root>"


Using reader As XmlReader = XmlReader.Create(New StringReader(xmlString))

    reader.ReadToDescendant("item")
    Do
        reader.MoveToAttribute("sale-item")
        Dim onSale As Boolean = reader.ReadContentAsBoolean()
        If onSale Then
            output.AppendLine(reader("productID"))
        End If
    Loop While reader.ReadToNextSibling("item")

    OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString()
End Using
StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();

{
    reader.ReadToDescendant("item");
    do
    {
        reader.MoveToAttribute("sale-item");
        Boolean onSale = reader.ReadContentAsBoolean();
        if (onSale)
        {
            output.AppendLine(reader["productID"]);
        }
    } while (reader.ReadToNextSibling("item"));
