XObject.Changed Event

Raised when this XObject or any of its descendants have changed.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
Assembly:  System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
public event EventHandler<XObjectChangeEventArgs> Changed

Events are raised only when an XML tree is modified, not when it is constructed. This is because you have to add an event handler to an event before you can receive events, and you cannot add an event handler before you have a reference to an XObject. You cannot get a reference to an XObject before the XML tree is constructed. This means that during functional construction of an XML tree, you will not receive events.

You should be careful when modifying an XML tree within one of these events, because doing this might lead to unexpected results. For example, if you receive a Changing event, and while the event is being processed you remove the node from the tree, you might not receive the Changed event. When an event is being processed, it is valid to modify an XML tree other than the one that contains the node that is receiving the event; it is even valid to modify the same tree provided the modifications do not affect the specific nodes on which the event was raised. However, if you modify the area of the tree that contains the node receiving the event, the events that you receive and the impact to the tree are undefined.

The following example adds an event handler to the root element of an XML tree. It then modifies the tree, causing LINQ to XML to raise some events.


StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();
XElement root = new XElement("Root", "content");
root.Changing += new EventHandler<XObjectChangeEventArgs>(
    (sender, cea) =>
    {
        output.Append("Changing event raised" + Environment.NewLine);
        XElement xSender = (XElement)sender;
        output.Append("  Sender: " + xSender.Name + Environment.NewLine);
        output.Append("  ObjectChange: " + cea.ObjectChange + Environment.NewLine);
    }
);
root.Changed += new EventHandler<XObjectChangeEventArgs>(
    (sender, cea) =>
    {
        output.Append("Changed event raised" + Environment.NewLine);
        XElement xSender = (XElement)sender;
        output.Append("  Sender: " + xSender.Name + Environment.NewLine);
        output.Append("  ObjectChange: " + cea.ObjectChange + Environment.NewLine);
    }
);
root.Add(new XElement("Child", "child content"));

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString();
