XmlDocument.LoadXml Method

Loads the XML document from the specified string.

Namespace:  System.Xml
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
public virtual void LoadXml(
	string xml
)

Parameters

xml
Type: System.String

String containing the XML document to load.

ExceptionCondition
XmlException

There is a load or parse error in the XML. In this case, the document remains empty.

By default the LoadXml method does not preserve white space or significant white space.

This method parses DTDs, but does not do DTD or Schema validation. If you want validation to occur, you can create a validating XmlReader instance by using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. For more information, see the Remarks section of the XmlReader reference page.

If you want to load from a Stream, String, TextReader, or XmlReader, use the Load method instead of this method.

This method is a Microsoft extension to the Document Object Model (DOM).

The following example loads XML into an XmlDocument object and saves it out to a file.

using System;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample {

  public static void Main() {

    // Create the XmlDocument.
    XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
    doc.LoadXml("<item><name>wrench</name></item>");

   // Add a price element.
   XmlElement newElem = doc.CreateElement("price");
   newElem.InnerText = "10.95";
   doc.DocumentElement.AppendChild(newElem);

    // Save the document to a file and auto-indent the output.
    XmlTextWriter writer = new XmlTextWriter("data.xml",null);
    writer.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;
    doc.Save(writer);
  }
}
