Setting this property replaces all the children with the parsed contents of the given string.

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

The following example compares the InnerText and InnerXml properties.

#using <System.Xml.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Xml;
int main()
   XmlDocument^ doc = gcnew XmlDocument;
   doc->LoadXml( "<root><elem>some text<child/>more text</elem></root>" );
   XmlElement^ elem = dynamic_cast<XmlElement^>(doc->DocumentElement->FirstChild);

   // Note that InnerText does not include the markup.
   Console::WriteLine( "Display the InnerText of the element..." );
   Console::WriteLine( elem->InnerText );

   // InnerXml includes the markup of the element.
   Console::WriteLine( "Display the InnerXml of the element..." );
   Console::WriteLine( elem->InnerXml );

   // Set InnerText to a string that includes markup.   
   // The markup is escaped.
   elem->InnerText = "Text containing <markup/> will have char(<) and char(>) escaped.";
   Console::WriteLine( elem->OuterXml );

   // Set InnerXml to a string that includes markup.   
   // The markup is not escaped.
   elem->InnerXml = "Text containing <markup/>.";
   Console::WriteLine( elem->OuterXml );
