XObject.Annotation Method (Type)

Gets the first annotation object of the specified type from this XObject.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
Assembly:  System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
public Object Annotation(
	Type type
)

Parameters

type
Type: System.Type
The Type of the annotation to retrieve.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
The Object that contains the first annotation object that matches the specified type, or null if no annotation is of the specified type.

The following class is used in the example below:


public class MyAnnotation
{
    private string tag;
    public string Tag { get { return tag; } set { tag = value; } }
    public MyAnnotation(string tag)
    {
        this.tag = tag;
    }
}


The following example adds an annotation to an XElement. It then retrieves the annotation, specifying the type to retrieve.


StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();
MyAnnotation ma = new MyAnnotation("T1");
XElement root = new XElement("Root", "content");
root.AddAnnotation(ma);

MyAnnotation ma2 = (MyAnnotation)root.Annotation(typeof(MyAnnotation));
output.Append(ma2.Tag + Environment.NewLine);

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString();
