DataSet.WriteXml Method (TextWriter)

.NET Framework 1.1

Writes the current data for the DataSet using the specified TextWriter.

[Visual Basic]
Overloads Public Sub WriteXml( _
   ByVal writer As TextWriter _
)
[C#]
public void WriteXml(
 TextWriter writer
);
[C++]
public: void WriteXml(
 TextWriter* writer
);
[JScript]
public function WriteXml(
   writer : TextWriter
);

Parameters

writer
The TextWriter object with which to write.

Remarks

The WriteXml method provides a way to write either data only, or both data and schema from a DataSet into an XML document, whereas the WriteXmlSchema method writes only the schema. To write both data and schema, use one of the overloads that includes the WriteXmlMode parameter, and set its value to WriteSchema.

Note that the same is true for the ReadXml and ReadXmlSchema methods, respectively. To read XML data, or both schema and data into the DataSet, use the ReadXml method. To read just the schema, use the ReadXmlSchema method.

Requirements

Platforms: Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 2000, Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003 family
