XmlNodeList XmlNodeList XmlNodeList XmlNodeList Class


Represents an ordered collection of nodes.

public ref class XmlNodeList abstract : IDisposable, System::Collections::IEnumerable
public abstract class XmlNodeList : IDisposable, System.Collections.IEnumerable
type XmlNodeList = class
    interface IEnumerable
    interface IDisposable
Public MustInherit Class XmlNodeList
Implements IDisposable, IEnumerable


Changes to the children of the node object that the XmlNodeList collection was created from are immediately reflected in the nodes returned by the XmlNodeList properties and methods. XmlNodeList supports iteration and indexed access.

XmlNodeList is returned by the following properties and methods.

  • XmlNode.ChildNodes - Returns an XmlNodeList containing all the children of the node.

  • XmlNode.SelectNodes - Returns an XmlNodeList containing a collection of nodes matching the XPath query.

  • GetElementsByTagName - Returns an XmlNodeList containing a list of all descendant elements that match the specified name. This method is available in both the XmlDocument and XmlElement classes.
