XStreamingElement Constructor (XName)

 

Initializes a new instance of the XElement class from the specified XName.

Namespace:   System.Xml.Linq
Assembly:  System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)

Public Sub New (
	name As XName
)

Parameters

name
Type: System.Xml.Linq.XName

An XName that contains the name of the element.

This constructor creates a streaming element with no content and no attributes.

There is an implicit conversion from string to XName. Typical use of this constructor is to specify a string as the parameter instead of creating a new XName.


                Dim srcTree As XElement = _
        <Root>
            <Child>1</Child>
            <Child>2</Child>
            <Child>3</Child>
            <Child>4</Child>
            <Child>5</Child>
        </Root>

Dim dstTree As XStreamingElement = New XStreamingElement("NewRoot", _
                From el In srcTree.Elements _
                Where el.Value >= 3 _
                Select <DifferentChild><%= el.Value %></DifferentChild> _
            )

Console.WriteLine(dstTree)

This example produces the following output:


                <NewRoot>
  <DifferentChild>3</DifferentChild>
  <DifferentChild>4</DifferentChild>
  <DifferentChild>5</DifferentChild>
</NewRoot>
