LINQ to XML is a library for querying and creating XML. In this course, you'll explore LINQ to XML, including how to read and query an XML file, load an XML file and find elements, write queries, manipulate and add to an XML document, and extract numerical values. You'll also examine the use of select statements with LINQ to XML, querying documents that include XML namespaces, and creating XML documents. Finally, you'll learn how to create XML using XElement, assemble XML documents with the XElement.Add method, the differences between the system.Xml.Linq and the system.Xml namespaces, and how to write XML with namespaces. This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).
