XElement::Load Method (String)

Loads an XElement from a file.

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

public:
static XElement^ Load(
	String^ uri
)

Parameters

uri
Type: System::String

A URI string referencing the file to load into a new XElement.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.Linq::XElement
An XElement that contains the contents of the specified file.

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 creates an XML tree, saves it to a file, and then uses this method to load the XElement from the file.
