DescendantsAndSelf(XName) DescendantsAndSelf(XName) DescendantsAndSelf(XName) DescendantsAndSelf(XName)

Returns a filtered collection of elements that contain this element, and all descendant elements of this element, in document order. Only elements that have a matching XName are included in the collection.

public:
 System::Collections::Generic::IEnumerable<System::Xml::Linq::XElement ^> ^ DescendantsAndSelf(System::Xml::Linq::XName ^ name);
public System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<System.Xml.Linq.XElement> DescendantsAndSelf (System.Xml.Linq.XName name);
member this.DescendantsAndSelf : System.Xml.Linq.XName -> seq<System.Xml.Linq.XElement>
Public Function DescendantsAndSelf (name As XName) As IEnumerable(Of XElement)

Parameters

name
XName XName XName XName

The XName to match.

Returns

An IEnumerable<T> of XElement that contain this element, and all descendant elements of this element, in document order. Only elements that have a matching XName are included in the collection.

Examples

The following example creates an XML tree, and then uses this .

XElement xmlTree = new XElement("Root",  
    new XAttribute("Att1", "AttributeContent"),  
    new XElement("Child",  
        new XText("Some text"),  
        new XElement("GrandChild", "element content")  
    )  
);  
IEnumerable<XElement> das = xmlTree.DescendantsAndSelf("Child");  
foreach (XElement el in das)  
    Console.WriteLine(el.Name);  
Dim xmlTree As XElement = _  
    <Root Att1="AttributeContent">  
        <Child>Some text  
            <GrandChild>element content</GrandChild>  
        </Child>  
    </Root>  
  
Dim das As IEnumerable(Of XElement) = xmlTree.DescendantsAndSelf("Child")  
  
For Each el In das  
    Console.WriteLine(el.Name)  
Next  

This example produces the following output:

Child
