Extensions.Remove<T> Method (IEnumerable<T>)

Removes every node in the source collection from its parent node.

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

public static void Remove<T>(
	this IEnumerable<T> source
)
where T : XNode

Type Parameters

T

The type of the objects in source, constrained to XNode.

Parameters

source
Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<T>
An IEnumerable<T> of XNode that contains the source collection.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IEnumerable<T>. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

source is null.

This method uses snapshot semantics—that is, it copies the nodes in the source collection to a List<T> before disconnecting them from their parents. This is required to avoid issues with mixed imperative/declarative code. For more information, see Mixed Declarative Code/Imperative Code Bugs in the .NET Framework documentation.
