Extensions.XPathSelectElements Method (XNode, String, IXmlNamespaceResolver)

Selects a collection of elements using an XPath expression, resolving namespace prefixes using the specified IXmlNamespaceResolver.

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

public static IEnumerable<XElement> XPathSelectElements(
	this XNode node,
	string expression,
	IXmlNamespaceResolver resolver
)

Parameters

node
Type: System.Xml.Linq.XNode
The XNode on which to evaluate the XPath expression.
expression
Type: System.String
A String that contains an XPath expression.
resolver
Type: System.Xml.IXmlNamespaceResolver
A IXmlNamespaceResolver for the namespace prefixes in the XPath expression.

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<XElement>
An IEnumerable<T> of XElement that contains the selected elements.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type XNode. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter.

You can use this method to evaluate XPath expressions that contain namespace prefixes.

Although the ordering of returned collections is not specified in the XML XPath Language 1.0 Recommendation, this extension method returns nodes in document order.

Note that nodes are returned in document order even when you use a reverse axis, such as preceding-sibling or ancestor-or-self.
