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

member PreviousNode : XNode with get

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.Linq.XNode

The XNode that contains the previous sibling node.

If this XNode does not have a parent, or if there is no previous node, this property returns null.

The XContainer stores its child nodes as a singly-linked list of XNode objects. This means that the PreviousNode property must traverse the list of direct child nodes under the parent container. Therefore, using this property might affect your performance.

The following example uses this property to loop through nodes.

                NodeType: Element   Child2
NodeType: Text      Some Text
NodeType: Element   Child1
