XNodeDocumentOrderComparer Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the XNodeDocumentOrderComparer class.

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

public XNodeDocumentOrderComparer()

We recommend that instead of using this class directly, you use the InDocumentOrder<T> method. This class is used internally by that method.

The following example uses of this class to compare the document order for two nodes.

XElement xmlTree = new XElement("Root",
    new XText("Text content."),
    new XElement("Child1", "child1 content"),
    new XElement("Child2", "child2 content"),
    new XElement("Child3", "child3 content"),
    new XText("More text content."),
    new XElement("Child4", "child4 content"),
    new XElement("Child5", "child5 content")
XElement child3 = xmlTree.Element("Child3");
XElement child5 = xmlTree.Element("Child5");
XNodeDocumentOrderComparer documentOrderComparer = new XNodeDocumentOrderComparer();
int val = documentOrderComparer.Compare(child3, child5);
if (val == 0)
    Console.WriteLine("Child3 is same as Child5");
else if (val < 0)
    Console.WriteLine("Child3 is before Child5");
    Console.WriteLine("Child3 is after Child5");

This example produces the following output:

Child3 is before Child5
