Listing 1: Convert XPath into LINQ to XML: XML: Build a Basic Structure

XML structures vary widely in arrangement, complexity, and whether the data is held in content or attributes. A variation of this sample XML is used throughout this article.

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- From Microsoft Sample Files with a namespace 
   added -->
<Root xmlns="http:CustomersAndOrder">
   <Customers>
      <Customer CustomerID="GREAL">
      <!-- Etc. -->
      <FullAddress>
         <Address>2732 Baker Blvd.</Address>
         <City>Eugene</City>
         <!-- Etc. -->
      </FullAddress>
      </Customer>
         <!-- Etc. -->
   </Customers>
   <Orders>
      <Order>
         <!-- Etc. -->
         <ShipInfo ShippedDate=
            "1997-05-09T00:00:00">
         <!-- Etc. -->
         <ShipRegion>OR</ShipRegion>
         </ShipInfo>
      </Order>
      <!-- Etc. -->
   </Orders>
</Root>
