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)
public: generic<typename T> where T : XNode [ExtensionAttribute] static void Remove( IEnumerable<T>^ source )
The type of the objects in source, constrained to XNode.
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>
