The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Initializes a new instance of the XDocument class with the specified content.

Namespace:   System.Xml.Linq
Assembly:  System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)

	... array<Object^>^ content


Type: array<System::Object^>^

A parameter list of content objects to add to this document.

There are not many scenarios that require you to create an XDocument. Instead, you can usually create your XML trees with an XElement root node. Unless you have a specific requirement to create a document (for example, because you have to create processing instructions and comments at the top level, or you have to support document types), it is often more convenient to use XElement as your root node.

For details about the valid content of an XDocument, see Valid Content of XElement and XDocument Objects1.

The following example creates a document, and then adds a comment and an element to it. It then composes another document using the results of a query.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

This example produces the following output:

                <!--This is a comment-->
