XElement.Load Method (Stream)

Creates a new XElement instance by using the specified stream.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
Assemblies:   System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
  System.Xml.XDocument (in System.Xml.XDocument.dll)

public static XElement Load(
	Stream stream
)

Parameters

stream
Type: System.IO.Stream

The stream that contains the XML data.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.Linq.XElement
An XElement object used to read 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.

LINQ to XML's loading functionality 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, following 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 XElement's Load overloads that takes XmlReader as a parameter.
