XDocument.NodeType Property

Gets the node type for this node.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
Assemblies:   System.Xml.XDocument (in System.Xml.XDocument.dll)
  System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)

abstract NodeType : XmlNodeType with get 
override NodeType : XmlNodeType with get

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNodeType
The node type. For XDocument objects, this value is Document.

Because all classes that derive from XObject contain a NodeType property, you can write code that operates on collections of objects where the type of each is a subclass of XObject. Your code can then test for the node type of each object in the collection.

The following example shows the use of this property.

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