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

public string Value { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
A String that contains the string value of this comment.


The value is null.

Unlike XElement and XAttribute, you cannot retrieve the contents of a comment by casting it to a string. Instead, you must use this property to retrieve the contents.

Setting this property will raise the Changed and the Changing events.

The following example creates a comment node. It then retrieves the contents of the comment node.

StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();
XComment com = new XComment("This is a comment");

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString();
