XElement.RemoveAttributes Method

Removes the attributes of this XElement.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
Assembly:  System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
public void RemoveAttributes()

This method will raise the Changed and the Changing events.

The following example creates an element with attributes and child elements. It then calls this method to remove the attributes. The child elements remain.

XElement root = new XElement("Root",
    new XAttribute("Att1", 1),
    new XAttribute("Att2", 2),
    new XAttribute("Att3", 3),
    new XElement("Child1", 1),
    new XElement("Child2", 2),
    new XElement("Child3", 3)
);
root.RemoveAttributes();
Console.WriteLine(root);

This example produces the following output:

<Root>
  <Child1>1</Child1>
  <Child2>2</Child2>
  <Child3>3</Child3>
</Root>
