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)

'Declaration
Public Sub New ( _
	other As XElement _
)

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.

Dim xmlTree As XElement = _
        <Root Att1="1">
            <Child1>1</Child1>
            <Child2>2</Child2>
        </Root>

' Create a clone of the tree.
Dim treeClone As XElement = 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
