XElement.Load Method (TextReader)

Loads an XElement from a TextReader.

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

public static XElement Load(
	TextReader textReader
)

Parameters

textReader
Type: System.IO.TextReader
A TextReader that will be read for the XElement content.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.Linq.XElement
An XElement that contains the XML that was read from the specified TextReader.

This method reads the raw XML into the XML tree. It discards all insignificant white space in the file.

LINQ to XML's loading functionality is built upon XmlReader. Therefore, you might catch any exceptions that are thrown by the XmlReader.Create overload methods and the XmlReader methods that read and parse the document.

The following example loads an element from a StringReader.

TextReader sr = new StringReader("<Root><Child/></Root>");
XElement xmlTree = XElement.Load(sr);
sr.Close();
Console.WriteLine(xmlTree);

This example produces the following output:

<Root>
  <Child />
</Root>
