The oldChild is not a child of this node. Or this node is read-only.

Notes to Inheritors When overriding RemoveChild in a derived class, in order for events to be raised correctly, you must call the RemoveChild method of the base class.

The following example removes a node from the XML document.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample {

  public static void Main() {

    XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
    doc.LoadXml("<book genre='novel' ISBN='1-861001-57-5'>" +
                "<title>Pride And Prejudice</title>" +
                "</book>");

    XmlNode root = doc.DocumentElement;

    //Remove the title element.
    root.RemoveChild(root.FirstChild);

    Console.WriteLine("Display the modified XML...");
    doc.Save(Console.Out);

  }
}

        XmlNode root = doc.get_DocumentElement();

        //Remove the title element.
        root.RemoveChild(root.get_FirstChild());

        Console.WriteLine("Display the modified XML...");
        doc.Save(Console.get_Out());
