An XDocument object that reads the data that is contained in the stream.

If you want to control load options, use the Load overload that takes LoadOptions as a parameter.

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 take XmlReaderSettings as a parameter.

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