XStreamingElement.ToString Method

Returns the formatted (indented) XML for this streaming element.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Linq
Assembly:  System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)

public override string ToString()

Return Value

Type: System.String
A String containing the indented XML.

Note that when debugging a program that uses XStreamingElement, displaying the value of an object causes its ToString method to be called. This causes the XML to be serialized. If the semantics of your streaming element query are such that the streaming element can only be streamed once, this may cause undesirable behavior in your debugging experience.

The following example shows two uses of ToString. The first use preserves white space. The second one serializes the XStreamingElement with formatting.


StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();
XElement srcTree = new XElement("Root",
                       new XElement("Child", 1),
                       new XElement("Child", 2),
                       new XElement("Child", 3),
                       new XElement("Child", 4),
                       new XElement("Child", 5)
                   );

XStreamingElement dstTree = new XStreamingElement("NewRoot",
                        from el in srcTree.Elements()
                        where (int)el == 3
                        select new XElement("DifferentChild", (int)el)
                    );

output.Append(dstTree.ToString(SaveOptions.DisableFormatting) + Environment.NewLine);
output.Append("------" + Environment.NewLine);
output.Append(dstTree.ToString() + Environment.NewLine);

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString();
