XElement Constructor (XElement)

Initializes a new instance of the XElement class from another XElement object.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
Assembly:  System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)

public XElement(
	XElement other
)

Parameters

other
Type: System.Xml.Linq.XElement

An XElement object to copy from.

This constructor makes a deep copy of an element.

The following example creates an XML tree, creates a clone of the tree, and then calls DeepEquals, which tests whether the two XML trees are equal.

XElement xmlTree = new XElement("Root",
    new XAttribute("Att1", 1),
    new XElement("Child1", 1),
    new XElement("Child2", 2)
);

// Create a clone of the tree.
XElement treeClone = new XElement(xmlTree);

Console.WriteLine("xmlTree = treeClone: {0}", XNode.DeepEquals(xmlTree, treeClone));

// Do some work with xmlTree, perhaps pass it to other methods.
xmlTree.Add(new XElement("Child3", 3));

Console.WriteLine("xmlTree = treeClone: {0}", XNode.DeepEquals(xmlTree, treeClone));

This example produces the following output:

xmlTree = treeClone: True
xmlTree = treeClone: False
