   ByVal inStream As Stream _
)
[C#]
public virtual void Load(
 Stream inStream
);
[C++]
public: virtual void Load(
 Stream* inStream
);

public function Load(
   inStream : Stream
);

Parameters

inStream
The stream containing the XML document to load.

Exceptions

Exception Type Condition
XmlException There is a load or parse error in the XML. In this case, the document remains empty.

Remarks

Note   The Load method always preserves significant white space. The PreserveWhitespace property determines whether or not white space is preserved. The default is false, white space is not preserved.

This method does not do DTD or schema validation. If you want validation to occur, you need to pass an XmlValidatingReader, specify the appropriate XmlValidatingReader.ValidationType, and provide a XmlValidatingReader.ValidationEventHandler. You are then notified of all validation errors found during Load, and unless your ValidationEventHandler throws an exception to stop the process, the document will still be loaded. See XmlDocument for an example of load-time validation

This method is a Microsoft extension to the Document Object Model (DOM).
