XObject.NodeType Property

Gets the node type for this XObject.

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

Public MustOverride ReadOnly Property NodeType As XmlNodeType

Property Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNodeType
The node type for this XObject.

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 uses this method to retrieve the node type for a variety of nodes.

Dim output As New StringBuilder
' Note that XNode uses XmlNodeType, which is in the System.Xml  namespace.
Dim xmlTree As XDocument = _
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!--a comment-->
    <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="hello.xsl"?>
    <Root Att="attContent">
        <Child1><![CDATA[CDATA content]]></Child1>
        <Child2>Text content</Child2>

For Each node As XNode In xmlTree.DescendantNodes
    If node.NodeType = XmlNodeType.Element Then
        For Each att In DirectCast(node, XElement).Attributes
    End If

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString()
