Replaces this node with the specified content.

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

member ReplaceWith : 
        content:Object -> unit

Parameters

content
Type: System.Object

Content that replaces this node.

This method first removes this node from its parent, and then adds the specified content to this node's parent, in the place of this node.

The XContainer stores its child nodes as a singly-linked list of XNode objects. This means that the ReplaceWith method must traverse the list of direct child nodes under the parent container. Therefore, using this method might affect your performance.

For details about the valid content that can be passed to this method, see Valid Content of XElement and XDocument Objects.

This method will raise the Changed and the Changing events.

The following example uses this method to replace the contents of a node with different content.

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

  <Child2>child2 content</Child2>
  <NewChild>new content</NewChild>
  <Child4>child4 content</Child4>
  <Child5>child5 content</Child5>
</Root>
