This class represents an XML element, the fundamental XML construct.

An element has an XName, optionally one or more attributes, and can optionally contain content. For more information, see Nodes.

An XElement can contain the following types of content:

For more information about the valid content of an XElement, see Valid Content of XElement and XDocument Objects in the .NET Framework documentation.

XElement derives from XContainer, which derives from XNode.

Some XElement methods can be used from XAML. For more information, see LINQ to XML Dynamic Properties in the .NET Framework documentation.

The following example creates an XML tree. The content of the new element comes from a LINQ query.


StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();
XElement xmlTree1 = new XElement("Root",
    new XElement("Child1", 1),
    new XElement("Child2", 2),
    new XElement("Child3", 3),
    new XElement("Child4", 4),
    new XElement("Child5", 5),
    new XElement("Child6", 6)
);

XElement xmlTree2 = new XElement("Root",
    from el in xmlTree1.Elements()
    where ((int)el >= 3 && (int)el <= 5)
    select el
);
output.Append(xmlTree2 + Environment.NewLine);

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString();
