The XmlNode to add. If it is an XmlDocumentFragment, the entire contents of the document fragment are moved into the child list of this node.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNode
The XmlNode added.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

This node is of a type that does not allow child nodes of the type of the newChild node.

The newChild is an ancestor of this node.

ArgumentException

The newChild was created from a different document than the one that created this node.

This node is read-only.
