It is invalid to pass an instance of a class that derives from XObject, such as XElement or XAttribute.

This method will raise the Changed and the Changing events.

The following example creates an element with several attributes. It then changes the contents of one of the attributes.


                Dim root As XElement = <Root Att1="content1" Att2="content2" Att3="content3"/>
Dim att As XAttribute = root.Attribute("Att2")
att.SetValue("new content")
Console.WriteLine(root)

This example produces the following output:


<Root Att1="content1" Att2="new content" Att3="content3" />
