Specifies load options when parsing XML.
This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.
Assembly: System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
|Does not preserve insignificant white space or load base URI and line information.|
|Preserves insignificant white space while parsing.|
|Requests the base URI information from the XmlReader, and makes it available via the BaseUri property.|
|Requests the line information from the XmlReader and makes it available via properties on XObject.|
If you preserve white space when loading, all insignificant white space in the XML tree is materialized in the XML tree as is. If you do not preserve white space, then all insignificant white space is discarded.
There is a performance penalty if you set the and the flags.
The base URI and the line information are accurate immediately after loading the XML document. If you modify the XML tree after loading the document, the base URI and line information may become meaningless.
If the underlying XmlReader does not have base URI or line information, setting the and the flags will have no effect.
This type allows you to control how LINQ to XML handles white space when loading or parsing.
