XNodeDocumentOrderComparer Constructor ()

 

Initializes a new instance of the XNodeDocumentOrderComparer class.

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

public XNodeDocumentOrderComparer()

We recommend that instead of using this class directly, you use the InDocumentOrder<T> method. This class is used internally by that method.

The following example uses of this class to compare the document order for two nodes.


                XElement xmlTree = new XElement("Root",
    new XText("Text content."),
    new XElement("Child1", "child1 content"),
    new XElement("Child2", "child2 content"),
    new XElement("Child3", "child3 content"),
    new XText("More text content."),
    new XElement("Child4", "child4 content"),
    new XElement("Child5", "child5 content")
);
XElement child3 = xmlTree.Element("Child3");
XElement child5 = xmlTree.Element("Child5");
XNodeDocumentOrderComparer documentOrderComparer = new XNodeDocumentOrderComparer();
int val = documentOrderComparer.Compare(child3, child5);
if (val == 0)
    Console.WriteLine("Child3 is same as Child5");
else if (val < 0)
    Console.WriteLine("Child3 is before Child5");
else
    Console.WriteLine("Child3 is after Child5");

This example produces the following output:

Child3 is before Child5
