XmlWriter.Create Method (Stream, XmlWriterSettings)

Creates a new XmlWriter instance using the stream and XmlWriterSettings object.

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

public static XmlWriter Create(
	Stream output,
	XmlWriterSettings settings
)

Parameters

output
Type: System.IO.Stream

The stream to which you want to write. The XmlWriter writes XML 1.0 text syntax and appends it to the specified stream

settings
Type: System.Xml.XmlWriterSettings

The XmlWriterSettings object used to configure the new XmlWriter instance. If this is null, a XmlWriterSettings with default settings is used.

If the XmlWriter is being used with the Transform method, you should use the OutputSettings property to obtain an XmlWriterSettings object with the correct settings. This ensures that the created XmlWriter object has the correct output settings.

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlWriter
An XmlWriter object.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The stream value is null.

The following example writes an XML fragment to a memory stream.

XmlWriterSettings settings = new XmlWriterSettings();
settings.OmitXmlDeclaration = true;
settings.ConformanceLevel = ConformanceLevel.Fragment;
settings.CloseOutput = false;

// Create the XmlWriter object and write some content.
MemoryStream strm = new MemoryStream();
XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create(strm, settings);
writer.WriteElementString("orderID", "1-456-ab");
writer.WriteElementString("orderID", "2-36-00a");
writer.Flush();
writer.Close();

// Do additonal processing on the stream.
