XmlTextWriter.Close Method

Closes this stream and the underlying stream.

Namespace: System.Xml
Assembly: System.Xml (in system.xml.dll)

public override void Close ()
public void Close ()
public override function Close ()

Exception typeCondition

InvalidOperationException

A call is made to write more output after Close has been called or the result of this call is an invalid XML document.

NoteNote

In the Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 release, the recommended practice is to create XmlWriter instances using the System.Xml.XmlWriter.Create method and the XmlWriterSettings class. This allows you to take full advantage of all the new features introduced in this release. For more information, see Creating XML Writers.

Any elements or attributes left open are automatically closed.

The following example writes an XML fragment.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample
{
  
  public static void Main()
  {
     //Create a writer to write XML to the console.
     XmlTextWriter writer = null;
     writer = new XmlTextWriter (Console.Out);

     //Use indentation for readability.
     writer.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;
     writer.Indentation = 4;
        
     //Write an element (this one is the root).
     writer.WriteStartElement("book");

     //Write the title element.
     writer.WriteStartElement("title");
     writer.WriteString("Pride And Prejudice");
     writer.WriteEndElement();

     //Write the close tag for the root element.
     writer.WriteEndElement();
             
     //Write the XML to file and close the writer.
     writer.Close();  

  }

}

import System.*;
import System.IO.*;
import System.Xml.*;

public class Sample
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        //Create a writer to write XML to the console.
        XmlTextWriter writer = null;
        writer = new XmlTextWriter(Console.get_Out());

        //Use indentation for readability.
        writer.set_Formatting(Formatting.Indented);
        writer.set_Indentation(4);

        //Write an element (this one is the root).
        writer.WriteStartElement("book");

        //Write the title element.
        writer.WriteStartElement("title");
        writer.WriteString("Pride And Prejudice");
        writer.WriteEndElement();

        //Write the close tag for the root element.
        writer.WriteEndElement();

        //Write the XML to file and close the writer.
        writer.Close();
    } //main
