Type Parameters


The type of annotations to remove.

The following example creates an element with four annotations on it. It then uses this method to remove two of them.

                Public Class MyAnnotation
    Private _tag As String

    Property Tag() As String
            Return Me._tag
        End Get
        Set(ByVal Value As String)
            Me._tag = Value
        End Set
    End Property

    Public Sub New(ByVal tag As String)
        Me._tag = tag
    End Sub
End Class

Module Module1
    Sub Main()
        Dim root As XElement = <Root>content</Root>
        root.AddAnnotation(New MyAnnotation("T1"))
        root.AddAnnotation(New MyAnnotation("T2"))

        Console.WriteLine("Count before removing: {0}", root.Annotations(Of Object)().Count())
        root.RemoveAnnotations(Of MyAnnotation)()
        Console.WriteLine("Count after removing: {0}", root.Annotations(Of Object)().Count())
    End Sub
End Module

This example produces the following output:

                Count before removing: 4
Count after removing: 2
