XNode.PreviousNode Property

Gets the previous sibling node of this node.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
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 a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

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.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

This example produces the following output:

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