I have an object as following:
dim oXE as XElement = ?????
How do I creat XElement from an existing XmlNode? I don't want to convert XmlNode to string and again parse the same to get to XElement.
Any solution available?
Thanks in Advance.

XSLT is perfect for what you want to do.

XElement is a LINQ class. I am not going to transform anything to use XSLT. I would like to query few things using LINQ to XML.
Any more ideas?

Hi guywithdoubts ,
XElement xdoc = new XElement(node.Name,node.InnerXml);

thanks. It worked!
However, I got a small issue.
My root element of XML source has few attributes associated with it.
If I write the following, it gives me what I need:
Dim xe As XElement = XElement.Load(New XmlNodeReader(GetTaskBarXML(FormName)))
But, if I write in the following manner, it gives different XElement and thus I am unable to use:
After examining a bit in depth, I came to see that in the first case, xe.Value is empty. Where as, in the second case, xe.Value contains what I am getting from InnerXml/OuterXml. But xe is automatically HTML encoded in the second case. How to solve this
problem. I am interested in the second case (as you suggested), if it works as expected in the first case.
Can you help me out on this as well?
