XmlDocument.CloneNode Method

Creates a duplicate of this node.

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

abstract CloneNode : 
        deep:bool -> XmlNode  
override CloneNode : 
        deep:bool -> XmlNode

Parameters

deep
Type: System.Boolean

true to recursively clone the subtree under the specified node; false to clone only the node itself.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlNode
The cloned XmlDocument node.

This method serves as a copy constructor for nodes. The cloned node has no parent (ParentNode returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic)).

If deep is true, the cloned node includes all the child nodes, otherwise only the XmlDocument node is cloned. See the XmlNode.CloneNode method to see how this method behaves on other node types.

The following example shows the difference between a deep and shallow clone.
