XDocument.NodeType Property

Definition

Gets the node type for this node.

public:
 virtual property System::Xml::XmlNodeType NodeType { System::Xml::XmlNodeType get(); };
public override System.Xml.XmlNodeType NodeType { get; }
member this.NodeType : System.Xml.XmlNodeType
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property NodeType As XmlNodeType

Property Value

The node type. For XDocument objects, this value is Document.

Examples

The following example shows the use of this property.

// Note that this property uses XmlNodeType, which is in the System.Xml namespace.  
XDocument xmlTree = new XDocument(  
    new XDeclaration("1.0", "utf-8", "yes"),  
    new XElement("Root", "content")  
);  
Console.WriteLine(xmlTree.NodeType);  
' Note that this property uses XmlNodeType, which is in the System.Xml namespace.  
Dim xmlTree As XDocument = _  
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' standalone='yes'?>  
        <Root>content</Root>  
Console.WriteLine("{0}", xmlTree.NodeType)  

This example produces the following output:

Document  

Remarks

Because all classes that derive from XObject contain a NodeType property, you can write code that operates on collections of objects where the type of each is a subclass of XObject. Your code can then test for the node type of each object in the collection.
