XElement.Load Method (XmlReader)
Assembly: System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
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 DOM document, creates an XmlNodeReader from the DOM document, instantiates a tree from the reader. This code effectively copies a DOM document into a LINQ to XML tree.
' Create a DOM document with some content. Dim doc As XmlDocument = New XmlDocument() Dim child As XmlElement = doc.CreateElement("Child") child.InnerText = "child contents" Dim root As XmlElement = doc.CreateElement("Root") root.AppendChild(child) doc.AppendChild(root) ' Create a reader and move to the content. Using nodeReader = New XmlNodeReader(doc) ' the reader must be in the Interactive state in order to ' Create a LINQ to XML tree from it. nodeReader.MoveToContent() Dim xRoot As XElement = XElement.Load(nodeReader) Console.WriteLine(xRoot) End Using
