XObject.Parent Property

Gets the parent XElement of this XObject.

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

public XElement Parent { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.Linq.XElement
The parent XElement of this XObject.

If this XObject has no parent element, this property returns null.

NoteNote:

This property returns the parent element, and as children nodes of an XDocument have no parent element, this property returns null for them.

The following example uses this method.


StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();
XDocument doc = new XDocument(
    new XComment("A comment in the document."),
    new XElement("Root",
        new XElement("Child", "content")
    )
);
XElement child = doc.Descendants("Child").First();
XElement root = child.Parent;
output.Append(root.Name + Environment.NewLine);

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString();
