XDocument.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

XmlNodeType

The node type. For XDocument objects, this value is Document.

Examples

The following example shows the use of this property.

// Note that this property uses XmlNodeType, which is in the System.Xml namespace.  
XDocument xmlTree = new XDocument(  
    new XDeclaration("1.0", "utf-8", "yes"),  
    new XElement("Root", "content")  
);  
Console.WriteLine(xmlTree.NodeType);  
' Note that this property uses XmlNodeType, which is in the System.Xml namespace.  
Dim xmlTree As XDocument = _  
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' standalone='yes'?>  
        <Root>content</Root>  
Console.WriteLine("{0}", xmlTree.NodeType)  

This example produces the following output:

Document  

Remarks

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