Public class XmlQualifiedName Represents an XML qualified name.
Public class XmlReader Represents a reader that provides fast, non-cached, forward-only access to XML data.
Public class XmlReaderSettings Specifies a set of features to support on the XmlReader object created by the Create method.
Public class XmlResolver Resolves external XML resources named by a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI).
Public class XmlSecureResolver Helps to secure another implementation of XmlResolver by wrapping the XmlResolver object and restricting the resources that the underlying XmlResolver has access to.
Public class XmlSignificantWhitespace Represents white space between markup in a mixed content node or white space within an xml:space= 'preserve' scope. This is also referred to as significant white space.
Public class XmlText Represents the text content of an element or attribute.
Public class XmlTextReader Represents a reader that provides fast, non-cached, forward-only access to XML data.
Public class XmlTextWriter Represents a writer that provides a fast, non-cached, forward-only way of generating streams or files containing XML data that conforms to the W3C Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 and the Namespaces in XML recommendations.
Public class XmlUrlResolver Resolves external XML resources named by a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI).
Public class XmlValidatingReader Obsolete. Represents a reader that provides document type definition (DTD), XML-Data Reduced (XDR) schema, and XML Schema definition language (XSD) validation.
Public class XmlWhitespace Represents white space in element content.
Public class XmlWriter Represents a writer that provides a fast, non-cached, forward-only means of generating streams or files containing XML data.
Public class XmlWriterSettings Specifies a set of features to support on the XmlWriter object created by the XmlWriter .Create method.
  Interface Description
Public interface IFragmentCapableXmlDictionaryWriter Contains properties and methods that when implemented by a XmlDictionaryWriter , allows processing of XML fragments.
Public interface IHasXmlNode Enables a class to return an XmlNode from the current context or position.
Public interface IStreamProvider An interface that can be implemented by classes providing streams.
Public interface IXmlBinaryReaderInitializer Provides methods for reinitializing a binary reader to read a new document.
Public interface IXmlBinaryWriterInitializer Specifies implementation requirements for XML binary writers that derive from this interface.
Public interface IXmlDictionary An interface that defines the contract that an Xml dictionary must implement to be used by XmlDictionaryReader and XmlDictionaryWriter implementations.
Public interface IXmlLineInfo Provides an interface to enable a class to return line and position information.
Public interface IXmlMtomReaderInitializer Specifies implementation requirements for XML MTOM readers that derive from this interface.
Public interface IXmlMtomWriterInitializer When implemented by an MTOM writer, this interface ensures initialization for an MTOM writer.
