XDocumentType.NodeType Property

Gets the node type for this node.

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

public override XmlNodeType NodeType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNodeType
The node type. For XDocumentType objects, this value is DocumentType.

Because all classes that derive from XObject contain a NodeType property, you can write code that operates on collections of concrete subclass of XObject. Your code can then test for the node type of each node in the collection.

The following example shows the use of this property to retrieve the node type for an XDocumentType object.

    StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();
    string internalSubset = @"<!ELEMENT Pubs (Book+)>
<!ELEMENT Book (Title, Author)>
<!ELEMENT Author (#PCDATA)>";

    string target = "xml-stylesheet";
    string data = "href=\"mystyle.css\" title=\"Compact\" type=\"text/css\"";

    XDocument doc = new XDocument(
        new XComment("This is a comment."),
        new XProcessingInstruction(target, data),
        new XDocumentType("Pubs", null, null, internalSubset),
        new XElement("Pubs",
            new XElement("Book",
                new XElement("Title", "Artifacts of Roman Civilization"),
                new XElement("Author", "Moreno, Jordao")
            new XElement("Book",
                new XElement("Title", "Midieval Tools and Implements"),
                new XElement("Author", "Gazit, Inbar")
        new XComment("This is another comment.")
    doc.Declaration = new XDeclaration("1.0", "utf-8", "true");

    output.Append(doc.DocumentType.NodeType + Environment.NewLine);

    OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString();
