This class also has a method Skip to skip current node and move to next one. The Xml Write class contains functionality to write data to XML documents.
Read String, Read Inner Xml, Read Outer Xml, and Read Start Element are more read methods. You can use Xml Data Document to read an XML document and generate a Data Set or read data from a Data Set and generate an XML file.
The purpose of each of these namespace is different. As you can see there are four reader and two writer classes. A Load method loads XML data from a string, stream, Text Reader or Xml Reader.
Reading XML Documents with XMLReader, by Atsushi Enomoto Here I start XML guide from “XML Reader” interface. If you just want to look into document structure easily, this “XML reader” won’t be convenient. Xml Reader leaves behind almost all information what it has read, so it is suitable if you would like to handle huge XML documents. This section starts with its node infoset properties (somewhat boring, but it needs to be described).
function to position the reader on a particular attribute by specifying either a name or a zero-based index. Element Validation Error(Xml Qualified Name name, Validation State context, Validation Event Handler event Handler, Object sender, String source Uri, Int32 line No, Int32 line Pos, Boolean get Particles)Note that if you have typed in the XML file using different formatting, you might get different line and character numbers.
Attributes are read along with the element node that they’re part of. By default, the parser will throw an exception if it finds a validation error, and if you don’t handle it, the program will terminate.
When reading attributes, you can use the at System. You can improve on this error handling by installing an event handler.
However, for smaller, simpler documents, a DTD can often be overkill, adding substantially to download and processing time.
Utlimately I want to be able to parse an xml STRING with an xsd STRING but this is the best I could do: parsing an xml FILE with an xsd FILE.
I basically reworked a console application example in the MSDN help file into a nicer looking ASP. It tells you if your file is not well-formed and then if it is not valid it lists out the specific reason (like in XMLSpy), quite helpful to find an error in a large XML file as it returns the line number on which the error occurred as well as the tag name. NET so to get it to work you will have to change the code around to whatever you want to do.
The XML Schema Validator checks if a given XML document is well formed and has a valid schema model.
If it finds the document is not a valid XML schema, it generates the error telling the problem in the schema.
