XmlDocument Class

Represents an XML document.

Namespace:  System.Xml
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
public class XmlDocument : XmlNode

This class implements the W3C Document Object Model (DOM) Level 1 Core and the Core DOM Level 2. The DOM is an in-memory (cache) tree representation of an XML document and enables the navigation and editing of this document. Because XmlDocument implements the IXPathNavigable interface it can also be used as the source document for the XslTransform class.

The XmlDataDocument class extends XmlDocument and allows structured data to be stored, retrieved, and manipulated through a relational DataSet. This class allows components to mix XML and relational views of the underlying data.

For more information, see XML Document Object Model (DOM).

Security noteSecurity Note:

Exceptions raised as a result of using the XmlDocument class, such as the XmlException class may contain sensitive information that should not be exposed in untrusted scenarios. Exceptions should be properly handled so that this sensitive information is not exposed in untrusted scenarios.
