It is invalid to pass an instance of a class that derives from XObject, such as XElement.

The following example creates an element that contains a child element. It then sets the value of the element using this method.

XElement root = new XElement("Root",
    new XElement("Child", "child content")
);
root.SetValue("new content");
Console.WriteLine(root);

This example produces the following output:

<Root>new content</Root>
