The following example creates an element that contains child elements. It then gets the first child node of the parent element.

XElement xmlTree = new XElement("Root",  
    new XElement("Child1", 1),  
    new XElement("Child2", 2),  
    new XElement("Child3", 3),  
    new XElement("Child4", 4),  
    new XElement("Child5", 5)  
);  
XNode firstNode = xmlTree.FirstNode;  
Console.WriteLine(firstNode);  
Dim xmlTree As XElement = _   
        <Root>  
            <Child1>1</Child1>  
            <Child2>2</Child2>  
            <Child3>3</Child3>  
            <Child4>4</Child4>  
            <Child5>5</Child5>  
        </Root>  
  
Dim firstNode As XNode = xmlTree.FirstNode  
Console.WriteLine(firstNode)  

This example produces the following output:
