The following example creates an XML tree using XStreamingElement. It then writes the streaming element to an XmlWriter.


                Dim srcTree As XElement = _
    <Root>
        <Child>1</Child>
        <Child>2</Child>
        <Child>3</Child>
        <Child>4</Child>
        <Child>5</Child>
    </Root>

Dim dstTree As XStreamingElement = _ 
    New XStreamingElement("NewRoot", _
        From el In srcTree.Elements() _
        Where el.Value = 3 _
        Select <DifferentChild><%= el.Value %></DifferentChild> )

Dim sb As StringBuilder = New StringBuilder()
Dim xws As XmlWriterSettings = New XmlWriterSettings()
xws.OmitXmlDeclaration = True
xws.Indent = True

Using xw As XmlWriter = XmlWriter.Create(sb, xws)
    dstTree.WriteTo(xw)
End Using
Console.WriteLine(sb.ToString())

This example produces the following output:


                <NewRoot>
  <DifferentChild>3</DifferentChild>
</NewRoot>
