System_CAPS_noteNote

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Adds the specified content as children of this XContainer.

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

public void Add(
	object content
)

Parameters

content
Type: System.Object

A content object containing simple content or a collection of content objects to be added.

This method adds the new content after the existing content of the XContainer.

For details about the valid content that can be passed to this function, see Valid Content of XElement and XDocument Objects1.

This method will raise the Changed and the Changing events.

The following example creates two XML trees, and then uses this method to add an XElement object to one of them. It also adds the results of a LINQ query to the XML tree.


                XElement srcTree = new XElement("Root",
    new XElement("Element1", 1),
    new XElement("Element2", 2),
    new XElement("Element3", 3),
    new XElement("Element4", 4),
    new XElement("Element5", 5)
);
XElement xmlTree = new XElement("Root",
    new XElement("Child1", 1),
    new XElement("Child2", 2),
    new XElement("Child3", 3),
    new XElement("Child4", 4),
    new XElement("Child5", 5)
);
xmlTree.Add(new XElement("NewChild", "new content"));
xmlTree.Add(
    from el in srcTree.Elements()
    where (int)el > 3
    select el
);
// Even though Child9 does not exist in srcTree, the following statement will not
// throw an exception, and nothing will be added to xmlTree.
xmlTree.Add(srcTree.Element("Child9"));
Console.WriteLine(xmlTree);

This example produces the following output:


                <Root>
  <Child1>1</Child1>
  <Child2>2</Child2>
  <Child3>3</Child3>
  <Child4>4</Child4>
  <Child5>5</Child5>
  <NewChild>new content</NewChild>
  <Element4>4</Element4>
  <Element5>5</Element5>
</Root>
