Description kenneth.beasley 2012-04-03 17:05:35 UTC
Here is this bit of example code:

            var testElement = new XElement("testElement");
            testElement.SetElementValue("newElement1", 10);
            testElement.SetElementValue("newElement2", 12);

            LogDebugMessage(this, new MessageEventArgs(testElement.ToString()));

The result I get from here, is an XElement with one child element of the name "newElement2" with a value of 12.

However, the functionality that I get when running this code targeted on a windows platform is an XElement that contains both child elements.

It seems that when SetElementValue is called, it overwrites any child XElements.

Using Visual Studio 2010
Mono for Android 4.06
Targeted at Android 2.3

Thank you.
