XmlImplementation.CreateDocument Method

Creates a new XmlDocument.

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

public virtual XmlDocument CreateDocument()

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlDocument
The new XmlDocument object.

XmlDocument objects created from the same implementation share the same name table. This enables users to compare attribute and element names between the objects more efficiently.

Although the XmlDocument objects share the same implementation, to move nodes from one document to another, you must use the ImportNode method.

The following example creates two XmlDocument objects from the same implementation.

XmlImplementation imp = new XmlImplementation();
XmlDocument doc1 = imp.CreateDocument();
XmlDocument doc2 = imp.CreateDocument();
XmlImplementation* imp = new XmlImplementation();
XmlDocument* doc1 = imp->CreateDocument();
XmlDocument* doc2 = imp->CreateDocument();
