XElement Constructor (XName)

Initializes a new instance of the XElement class with the specified name.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
Assembly:  System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)

Syntax

'Declaration
Public Sub New ( _
    name As XName _
)
public XElement(
    XName name
)

Parameters

Remarks

This constructor creates an element with no content and no attributes.

There is an implicit conversion from string to XName. Typical use of this constructor is to specify a string as the parameter instead of creating a new XName. When creating an element in a namespace, typical use is to use the addition operator overload with an XNamespace and a string to create an XName. For more information, see Working With Namespaces in the .NET Framework documentation.
