XmlDsigXsltTransform.LoadInnerXml(XmlNodeList) XmlDsigXsltTransform.LoadInnerXml(XmlNodeList) XmlDsigXsltTransform.LoadInnerXml(XmlNodeList) XmlDsigXsltTransform.LoadInnerXml(XmlNodeList) Method

Definition

Parses the specified XmlNodeList object as transform-specific content of a <Transform> element and configures the internal state of the current XmlDsigXsltTransform object to match the <Transform> element.

public:
 override void LoadInnerXml(System::Xml::XmlNodeList ^ nodeList);
public override void LoadInnerXml (System.Xml.XmlNodeList nodeList);
override this.LoadInnerXml : System.Xml.XmlNodeList -> unit
Public Overrides Sub LoadInnerXml (nodeList As XmlNodeList)

Parameters

nodeList
XmlNodeList XmlNodeList XmlNodeList XmlNodeList

An XmlNodeList object that encapsulates an XSLT style sheet to load into the current XmlDsigXsltTransform object. This style sheet is applied to the document loaded by the LoadInput(Object) method.

Exceptions

The nodeList parameter is null.

-or-

The nodeList parameter does not contain an XmlDsigXsltTransform object.
