XNode.NextNode Property

Definition

Gets the next sibling node of this node.

public:
 property System::Xml::Linq::XNode ^ NextNode { System::Xml::Linq::XNode ^ get(); };
public System.Xml.Linq.XNode NextNode { get; }
member this.NextNode : System.Xml.Linq.XNode
Public ReadOnly Property NextNode As XNode

Property Value

The XNode that contains the next sibling node.

Examples

The following example uses this property to loop through nodes.

XElement xmlTree = new XElement("Root",  
    new XElement("Child1", 1),  
    new XText("Some Text"),  
    new XElement("Child2",  
        2,  
        new XElement("GrandChild", "GrandChild Content")  
    ),  
    new XComment("a comment"),  
    new XElement("Child3")  
);  
XNode node = xmlTree.Element("Child2");  
do {  
    StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();  
    sb.Append(String.Format("NodeType: {0}", node.NodeType.ToString().PadRight(10)));  
    switch (node.NodeType)  
    {  
        case XmlNodeType.Text:  
            sb.Append((node as XText).Value);  
            break;  
        case XmlNodeType.Element:  
            sb.Append((node as XElement).Name);  
            break;  
        case XmlNodeType.Comment:  
            sb.Append((node as XComment).Value);  
            break;  
    }  
    Console.WriteLine(sb.ToString());  
}  
while ((node = node.NextNode) != null);  
Dim xmlTree As XElement = _   
        <Root>  
            <Child1>1</Child1>Some Text  
            <Child2>2  
                <GrandChild>GrandChild Content</GrandChild>  
            </Child2>  
            <!--a comment-->  
            <Child3>3</Child3>  
        </Root>  
  
Dim node As XNode = xmlTree.Element("Child2")  
Do  
    Dim sb As StringBuilder = New StringBuilder()  
    sb.Append(String.Format("NodeType: {0}", node.NodeType.ToString().PadRight(10)))  
    Select Case node.NodeType  
        Case XmlNodeType.Text  
            sb.Append(DirectCast(node, XText).Value)  
        Case XmlNodeType.Element  
            sb.Append(DirectCast(node, XElement).Name)  
        Case XmlNodeType.Comment  
            sb.Append(DirectCast(node, XComment).Value)  
    End Select  
    Console.WriteLine(sb.ToString())  
  
    node = node.NextNode  
Loop While (Not (node Is Nothing))  

This example produces the following output:

NodeType: Element   Child2  
NodeType: Comment   a comment  
NodeType: Element   Child3  

Remarks

If this XNode does not have a parent, or if there is no next node, this property returns null.
