public void RemoveAnnotations<T>()

Type Parameters


The type of annotations to remove.

The following example creates an element with four annotations on it. It then uses this method to remove two of them.

public class MyAnnotation {
    private string tag;
    public string Tag {get{return tag;} set{tag=value;}}
    public MyAnnotation(string tag) {
        this.tag = tag;

class Program {
    static void Main(string[] args) {   
        XElement root = new XElement("Root", "content");
        root.AddAnnotation(new MyAnnotation("T1"));
        root.AddAnnotation(new MyAnnotation("T2"));

        Console.WriteLine("Count before removing: {0}", root.Annotations<object>().Count());
        Console.WriteLine("Count after removing: {0}", root.Annotations<object>().Count());

This example produces the following output:

Count before removing: 4
Count after removing: 2
