Title: Visual Studio C# - LINQ - LINQToXML - Lesson I
Duration: 15:39 min
Description: XML is very handy when it comes to exchanging documents between companies and saving application settings and configurations. It is very natural for LINQ to support XML. In this video (and upcoming videos) I am going to discuss the use of XDocument, XElement, and how easy it is to query and manipulate XML documents and elements. Specifically, in this video we will look at loading XML documents, and retrieving elements from our Books.xml file.
Methodology: Using LINQ as a library to abstract away reading XML data.
Technologies: XML, LINQ, LINQtoXML.
Examples constructed: We start with showing the content of the Books.xml file. Then we go
over the steps needed to load the xml file into an XDocument and retrieve the elements needed.
Key words: XML, XDocument, XElement.
