Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
Assemblies:   System.Xml.XDocument (in System.Xml.XDocument.dll)

The following example uses this class to determine whether two nodes are equal.

XElement xmlTree1 = new XElement("Root",
    new XAttribute("Att1", 1),
    new XAttribute("Att2", 2),
    new XElement("Child1", 1),
    new XElement("Child2", "some content")
);
XElement xmlTree2 = new XElement("Root",
    new XAttribute("Att1", 1),
    new XAttribute("Att2", 2),
    new XElement("Child1", 1),
    new XElement("Child2", "some content")
);
XNodeEqualityComparer equalityComparer = new XNodeEqualityComparer();
Console.WriteLine(equalityComparer.Equals(xmlTree1, xmlTree2));
xmlTree2.Add(new XElement("NewChild", "new content"));
Console.WriteLine(equalityComparer.Equals(xmlTree1, xmlTree2));

This example produces the following output:

True
False
