XmlTextWriter.WriteFullEndElement Method

Closes one element and pops the corresponding namespace scope.

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

public override void WriteFullEndElement()

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 method always writes the full end tag. This is useful when dealing with elements that must include a full end tag. For example, browsers expect HTML script blocks to be closed with "</script>".

The following example writes out an element with no content. It uses WriteFullEndElement to write the full end element tag.

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

public class Sample
{ 
  public static void Main()
  {
     //Create a writer to write XML to the console.
     XmlTextWriter writer = null;
     writer = new XmlTextWriter (Console.Out);

     //Use indentation for readability.
     writer.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;

     //Write an element (this one is the root).
     writer.WriteStartElement("order");

     //Write some attributes.
     writer.WriteAttributeString("date", "2/19/01");
     writer.WriteAttributeString("orderID", "136A5");

     //Write a full end element. Because this element has no 
     //content, calling WriteEndElement would have written a 
     //short end tag '/>'.
     writer.WriteFullEndElement();

     //Write the XML to file and close the writer
     writer.Close();  
  }
}
