DataTable.WriteXml Method (XmlWriter, XmlWriteMode)

Writes the current data, and optionally the schema, for the DataTable using the specified XmlWriter and XmlWriteMode. To write the schema, set the value for the mode parameter to WriteSchema.

Namespace: System.Data
Assembly: System.Data (in system.data.dll)

public void WriteXml (
	XmlWriter writer,
	XmlWriteMode mode
)
public void WriteXml (
	XmlWriter writer, 
	XmlWriteMode mode
)
public function WriteXml (
	writer : XmlWriter, 
	mode : XmlWriteMode
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

writer

The XmlWriter used to write the document.

mode

One of the XmlWriteMode values.

The WriteXml method provides a way to write either data only, or both data and schema from a DataTable into an XML document, whereas the WriteXmlSchema method writes only the schema. To write both data and schema, use one of the overloads that include the XmlWriteMode 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 DataTable, use the ReadXml method. To read just the schema, use the ReadXmlSchema method.
