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

public static XElement Load(
	Stream stream,
	LoadOptions options
)

Parameters

stream
Type: System.IO.Stream
The stream containing the XML data.
options
Type: System.Xml.Linq.LoadOptions
A LoadOptions object that specifies whether to load base URI and line information.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.Linq.XElement
An XElement object used to read the data that the stream contains.

LINQ to XML's loading functionality is built upon XmlReader. Therefore, you might catch any exceptions that are thrown by the XmlReader.Create overload methods and the XmlReader methods that read and parse the document.

If you have to modify XmlReaderSettings, following these steps:

  1. Create an XmlReader by calling one of the Create overloads that take XmlReaderSettings as a parameter.

  2. Pass the XmlReader to one of the XElement's Load overloads that takes XmlReader as a parameter.
