Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
Assembly:  System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
public void SetValue(
	Object value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Object

The value to assign to this element. The value is converted to its string representation and assigned to the Value property.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The value is null.

ArgumentException

The value is an XObject.

This method will raise the Changed and the Changing events.

It is invalid to pass an instance of a class that derives from XObject, such as XElement.

The following example creates an element that contains a child element. It then sets the value of the element using this method.

XElement root = new XElement("Root",
    new XElement("Child", "child content")
);
root.SetValue("new content");
Console.WriteLine(root);

This example produces the following output:

<Root>new content</Root>
