XObject.NodeType Property

Gets the node type for this XObject.

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

public abstract XmlNodeType NodeType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNodeType
The node type for this XObject.

Because all classes that derive from XObject contain a NodeType property, you can write code that operates on collections of concrete subclass of XObject. Your code can then test for the node type of each node in the collection.

The following example uses this method to retrieve the node type for a variety of nodes.

// Note that XNode uses XmlNodeType, which is in the System.Xml namespace.
XDocument xmlTree = new XDocument(
    new XComment("a comment"),
    new XProcessingInstruction("xml-stylesheet", "type=\"text/xsl\" href=\"hello.xsl\""),
    new XElement("Root",
        new XAttribute("Att", "attContent"),
        new XElement("Child1",
            new XCData("CDATA content")
        ),
        new XElement("Child2",
            new XText("Text content")
        )
    )
);

foreach (XNode node in xmlTree.DescendantNodes())
{
    Console.WriteLine(node.NodeType);
    if (node.NodeType == XmlNodeType.Element)
    {
        foreach (XAttribute att in ((XElement)node).Attributes())
            Console.WriteLine(att.NodeType);
    }
}

This example produces the following output:
