Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq

'Declaration
Public Sub RemoveAnnotations(Of T As Class)
public void RemoveAnnotations<T>()
where T : class

Type Parameters

  • T
    The type of annotations to remove.

Examples

The following class is used in the example below:

Public Class MyAnnotation
    Private _tag As String

    Property Tag() As String
        Get
            Return Me._tag
        End Get
        Set(ByVal Value As String)
            Me._tag = Value
        End Set
    End Property

    Public Sub New(ByVal tag As String)
        Me._tag = tag
    End Sub
End Class
public class MyAnnotation
{
    private string tag;
    public string Tag { get { return tag; } set { tag = value; } }
    public MyAnnotation(string tag)
    {
        this.tag = tag;
    }
}

The following example creates an element with four annotations on it. It then uses this method to remove two of them.

Dim output As New StringBuilder
Dim root As XElement = <Root>content</Root>
root.AddAnnotation(New MyAnnotation("T1"))
root.AddAnnotation(New MyAnnotation("T2"))
root.AddAnnotation("abc")
root.AddAnnotation("def")

output.Append("Count before removing: {0}", root.Annotations(Of Object)().Count())
output.Append(Environment.NewLine)
root.RemoveAnnotations(Of MyAnnotation)()
output.Append("Count after removing: {0}", root.Annotations(Of Object)().Count())
output.Append(Environment.NewLine)
OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString()
StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();
XElement root = new XElement("Root", "content");
root.AddAnnotation(new MyAnnotation("T1"));
root.AddAnnotation(new MyAnnotation("T2"));
root.AddAnnotation("abc");
root.AddAnnotation("def");

output.Append("Count before removing: " +  root.Annotations<object>().Count() + Environment.NewLine);
root.RemoveAnnotations<MyAnnotation>();
output.Append("Count after removing: " +  root.Annotations<object>().Count() + Environment.NewLine);

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString();
