Extensions::CreateNavigator Method (XNode^)
Assembly: System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
Namespace declarations are reported from left to right. In contrast, for XmlDocument namespaces are reported from right to left. This is conformant behavior because namespace declarations are not ordered in the XPath data model.
The method MoveToId is not supported for navigators that are returned by this method.
You can use this method to perform an XSLT transformation. You can create an XML tree, create an XPathNavigator from the XML tree, create a new document, and create a XmlWriter that will write into the new document. Then, you can invoke the XSLT transformation, passing the XPathNavigator and XmlWriter to the transform. After the transformation successfully completes, the new XML tree is populated with the results of the transformation.
To perform an XSLT transformation, you can use either an XmlReader or an XPathNavigator. The two approaches have different performance characteristics. Some transformations will execute faster when using an XmlReader, and others will execute faster when using a XPathNavigator. If performance is a concern, we recommend that you experiment with each approach to determine which will perform better in your circumstances.
