You can get and set the value using LINQ to XML and XML axis properties.
VB.NET
Dim conceptor = XDocument.Load("C:\file.xml")
' Retrieve value
Dim subjectField = conceptor...<descrip>.Where(Function(d) d.@type = "subjectField").Value
' Change value
conceptor...<descrip>.Where(Function(d) d.@type = "subjectField").Value = "1234"
' Save changes
conceptor.Save("C:\file.xml")
The descendant axis property, ...<>, gets all descendants that have the name specified within the angle brackets. The attribute axis property, .@, returns a reference to the value of the specified attribute. The Value axis property returns a reference to the value of the first element in a collection of elements.
