XmlDocument.CreateCDataSection Method

Creates an XmlCDataSection containing the specified data.

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

public virtual XmlCDataSection CreateCDataSection (
	string data
)
public XmlCDataSection CreateCDataSection (
	String data
)
public function CreateCDataSection (
	data : String
) : XmlCDataSection
Not applicable.

Parameters

data

The content of the new XmlCDataSection.

Return Value

The new XmlCDataSection.

Although this method creates the new object in the context of the document, it does not automatically add the new object to the document tree. To add the new object, you must explicitly call one of the node insert methods.

According to the W3C Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 recommendation (www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-xml-19980210), CDataSection nodes are allowed within Element nodes and in EntityReference nodes when the EntityReference node is not a child of an Attribute node.

The following example creates a CDATA node and adds it to the document.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public class Sample
{
  public static void Main()
  {
    XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
    doc.LoadXml("<book genre='novel' ISBN='1-861001-57-5'>" +
                "<title>Pride And Prejudice</title>" +
                "</book>");

    //Create a CData section.
    XmlCDataSection CData;
    CData = doc.CreateCDataSection("All Jane Austen novels 25% off starting 3/23!");    

    //Add the new node to the document.
    XmlElement root = doc.DocumentElement;
    root.AppendChild(CData);  
        
    Console.WriteLine("Display the modified XML...");        
    doc.Save(Console.Out);
  }
}

{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
        doc.LoadXml(("<book genre='novel' ISBN='1-861001-57-5'>"
                    + "<title>Pride And Prejudice</title>"
                    + "</book>"));

        //Create a CData section.
        XmlCDataSection cData;
        cData = doc.CreateCDataSection("All Jane Austen novels 25% off"
            + " starting 3/23!");

        //Add the new node to the document.
        XmlElement root = doc.get_DocumentElement();
        root.AppendChild(cData);

        Console.WriteLine("Display the modified XML...");
        doc.Save(Console.get_Out());
    } //main
