Extensions.Remove(T) Method (IEnumerable(T))
Removes every node in the source collection from its parent node.
Assembly: System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
The type of the objects in source, constrained to XNode.
Usage NoteIn Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IEnumerable(). When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).
This method uses snapshot semantics—that is, it copies the attributes in the source collection to a List<T> before disconnecting them from their parents. This is required to avoid issues with mixed imperative/declarative code. For more information, see Mixed Declarative Code/Imperative Code Bugs (LINQ to XML).
The following example retrieves a collection of elements. It then calls this method to remove the elements from their parent element.
This example produces the following output:
<Root> <Data>1</Data> <Data>2</Data> </Root>
