XmlTextWriter.Flush Method

Flushes whatever is in the buffer to the underlying streams and also flushes the underlying stream.

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

public override void Flush()

NoteNote

Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, we recommend that you create XmlWriter instances by using the XmlWriter.Create method and the XmlWriterSettings class to take advantage of new functionality.

This is called instead of Close when you want to write more to the underlying stream without losing what is still in the buffer.

The following example writes out two XML fragments.

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

public class Sample
{

  public static void Main()
  {
     XmlTextWriter writer = new XmlTextWriter (Console.Out);
     //Use indenting for readability
     writer.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;
	
     //Write an XML fragment.
     writer.WriteStartElement("book");
     writer.WriteElementString("title", "Pride And Prejudice");
     writer.WriteEndElement();
     writer.Flush();

     //Write another XML fragment.
     writer.WriteStartElement("cd");
     writer.WriteElementString("title", "Americana");
     writer.WriteEndElement();
     writer.Flush();  

     //Close the writer.
     writer.Close();
  }
}
