XmlWriter.WriteStartElement Method (String, String)

When overridden in a derived class, writes the specified start tag and associates it with the given namespace.

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

public void WriteStartElement (
	string localName,
	string ns
)
public void WriteStartElement (
	String localName, 
	String ns
)
public function WriteStartElement (
	localName : String, 
	ns : String
)

Parameters

localName

The local name of the element.

ns

The namespace URI to associate with the element. If this namespace is already in scope and has an associated prefix, the writer automatically writes that prefix also.

Exception typeCondition

InvalidOperationException

The writer is closed.

After calling this method you can either write attributes, or create content using WriteComment, WriteString, or WriteStartElement for child elements. You can close the element with either WriteEndElement or WriteFullEndElement. For example, the following C# code:

 writer.WriteStartElement("item",null);
 writer.WriteString("some text");
 writer.WriteEndElement();

Generates the following output:

 <item>some text</item>
