XDocument.Load Method (TextReader)

Creates a new XDocument from a TextReader.

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

public static XDocument Load(
	TextReader textReader
)

Parameters

textReader
Type: System.IO.TextReader

A TextReader that contains the content for the XDocument.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.Linq.XDocument
An XDocument that contains the contents of the specified TextReader.

LINQ to XML's loading functionality is built upon XmlReader. Therefore, you might catch any exceptions that are thrown by the XmlReader.Create overload methods and the XmlReader methods that read and parse the document.

The following example creates a document from a StringReader.

TextReader tr = new StringReader("<Root>Content</Root>");
XDocument doc = XDocument.Load(tr);
Console.WriteLine(doc);

This example produces the following output:

<Root>Content</Root>
