There are no add-ons required, such as the MSXML Parser or the SOAP Toolkit. Xml Validating Reader implements the Xml Reader class and provides support for data validation. Schemas property to have the reader validate using schema files cached in an Xml Schema Collection. Validation Type property specifies what type of validation the reader should perform. To read XML data from an Xml Node, use Xml Node Reader.After an exception is thrown the state of the reader is not predictable. You can create a validating Xml Reader instance by using the Xml Reader Settings class and the Create method.For example, the reported node type may be different than the actual node type of the current node. For more information, see the Remarks section of the Xml Reader reference page. Create() method using appropriate Xml Reader Settings instead. Create (new Xml Text Reader(file), settings); Check the MSDN documentation for Xml Validating Reader and you'll see in the [Obsolete Attribute] attribute this: "Use Xml Reader created by Xml Reader. If you do not need data validation, the ability to resolve general entities, or support for default attributes, use Xml Text Reader.
For example, the reported node type may be different than the actual node type of the current node. Read State property to check whether a reader is in error state. For more information, see Validating XML Data with Xml Reader. Sets the Xml Resolver used for resolving external document type definition (DTD) and schema location references.If the node is not a content node, the reader skips ahead to the next content node or end of file.It skips over nodes of the following type: Processing Instruction, Document Type, Comment, Whitespace, or Significant Whitespace.The Xml Resolver is also used to handle any import or include elements found in XML Schema definition language (XSD) schemas. Move To Content and tests if the current content node is a start tag or empty element tag and if the Xml Reader. Namespace URI properties of the element found match the given strings.Checks whether the current node is a content (non-white space text, CDATA, Element, End Element, Entity Reference, or End Entity) node.
