In Brief

  • The XmlDocument builds a tree data structure of the XML document it parses.

  • The XmlDocument allows navigating the nodes in all directions: parent to child, child to parent, and sibling to sibling.

  • The XmlDocument provides a rich API for accessing the data in each XML node.

  • Searching the XML document is difficult since the .NET Compact Framework does not provide XPath support.

  • Since XPath is not supported, care must taken when designing your XML data.

  • The XmlDocument provides methods for creating every type of XML node.

  • After manipulating your XML data, the contained XML data can be persisted using the Save method.
