Creates a new XDocument from a string.
Assembly: System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
For more information, see Preserving White Space while Loading or Parsing XML3 and Preserving White Space While Serializing1.
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 string that contains XML. It then parses the string into an XDocument.
Dim str As String = _ "<?xml version= '1.0'?>" & _ "<!-- comment at the root level -->" & _ "<Root>" & _ " <Child>Content</Child>" & _ "</Root>" Dim doc As XDocument = XDocument.Parse(str) Console.WriteLine(doc)
