XElement.Parse Method (String)

Load an XElement from a string that contains XML.

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

public static XElement Parse(
	string text
)

Parameters

text
Type: System.String
A String that contains XML.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.Linq.XElement
An XElement populated from the string that contains XML.

This method does not preserve white space. If you want to preserve white space in the XML tree, use the overload of the Parse method that takes LoadOptions as a parameter.

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 a string that contains XML. It then parses the string into an XElement.

XElement xmlTree = XElement.Parse("<Root> <Child> </Child> </Root>");
