XAttribute.NodeType XAttribute.NodeType XAttribute.NodeType XAttribute.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 XAttribute objects, this value is Attribute.

Examples

The following example creates an attribute, and then displays the node type using this property.

XElement root = new XElement("Root",  
    new XAttribute("Att", "content")  
);  

XAttribute att = root.FirstAttribute;  
Console.WriteLine(att.NodeType);  
Dim root As XElement = <Root Att="content"/>  
Dim att As XAttribute = root.FirstAttribute  
Console.WriteLine(att.NodeType.ToString)  

This example produces the following output:


Attribute  

Remarks

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