Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<XElement>
An IEnumerable<T> of XElement of the sibling elements after this node, in document order. Only elements that have a matching XName are included in the collection.

This method only includes siblings in the returned collection. It does not include descendants.

This method uses deferred execution.

The following example creates an element with some complex content. It then uses this method to retrieve the sibling elements, in document order.

XElement xmlTree = new XElement("Root",
    new XText("Text content."),
    new XElement("Child1", "child1 content"),
    new XElement("Child2", "child2 content"),
    new XElement("Child3", "child3 content"),
    new XText("More text content."),
    new XElement("Child4", "child4 content"),
    new XElement("Child5", "child5 content")
);
XElement child = xmlTree.Element("Child3");
IEnumerable<XElement> elements = child.ElementsAfterSelf("Child4");
foreach (XElement el in elements)
    Console.WriteLine(el.Name);

This example produces the following output:
