I am using the htmlagilitypack to parse an xml document. I use it to load the string as a htmldocument and then use the xmltextreader to parse. I will occasionally get an unhandled stackoverflow exception on htmlagility.dll. The specific line is

 

internal Dictionary<string, Htmlattribute> Hashitems = new 
                            Dictionary<string, HtmlAttribute>()

 

In fact there are different stackoverflow exception errors occurring at different lines but the same error and only while using htmlagilitypack. I am in another method trying to parse the xml using xmldocument, xpathnavigator and it works fine unless I get some bad xml, then I go to this method. I have set up exception catches to just move the bad xml to a folder and then exit this method but I cannot catch these kinds of exceptions or can I?

Another line where error shows:

 

 

public string Name
{
   get
   {
     if (_name == null)
     {
       Name = _ownerdocument.Text.Substring(_namestartindex, _namelength);
     }
      return _name != null ? _name.ToLower() : string.Empty;

 

on the last line in the snippet above in the file HtmlNode.cs. The call stack window shows the top as:

 

 

 

HtmlAgilityPack.dll!HtmlAgilityPack.HtmlNode.Name.get() Line 432 + 0x21 bytes






My code sample
Try
            Dim hdoc = New HtmlAgilityPack.HtmlDocument()
            hdoc.LoadHtml(xmlsnippet)

                         XmlTextReader(New StringReader(xmlsnippet))

            While nreader.Read
                If Not nreader.Name = "" Then
                    ncount += 1
                    If ncount = 18 Then
                        Exit While
                    End If
                    num += 1
