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

public static XDocument Load(
	Stream stream,
	LoadOptions options
)

Parameters

stream
Type: System.IO.Stream
The stream containing the XML data.
options
Type: System.Xml.Linq.LoadOptions
A LoadOptions that specifies whether to load base URI and line information.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.Linq.XDocument
An XDocument object that reads the data that is contained in the stream.

The loading functionality of LINQ to XML 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.

If you have to modify XmlReaderSettings, follow these steps:

  1. Create an XmlReader by calling one of the Create overloads that takes XmlReaderSettings as a parameter.

  2. Pass the XmlReader to one of the Load overloads of XDocument that takes XmlReader as a parameter.
