Remarks

The Document property is obsolete. To specify the XML that will be displayed in the Xml control, use the DocumentContent property or the DocumentSource property. For more information about these alternatives, see the class overview for the Xml control.

The XML document to display in the Xml control is specified in one of three ways. You can specify a System.Xml.XmlDocument object, an XML string, or an XML file by setting the appropriate property. The Document property is used to specify a System.Xml.XmlDocument (representing an XML document) to display in the control.
