I'm using LINQ together with XDocument to read a XML File. This is the code:
XDocument xml = XDocument.Load(filename);
var q = from b in xml.Descendants("product")
name = b.Element("name").Value,
price = b.Element("price").Value,
extra = b.Element("extra1").Value,
deeplink = b.Element("deepLink").Value
Now the problem is, the extra1 field is not always present. There are items in the XML file without that node. If that happens it's crashing with a NullReferenceException.
Is there any possibility to include a "check if null" so I can prevent it from crashing?
